Note that when the TeX primitives do not honour S_D_E, xetex output is
not reproducible (even if \today is not used) because of the /Creator
string which includes a date that is build from these primitives :


So solution 3 should include a bugfix to make xetex's Creator string
either strip the build date either honour S_D_E.
