The XEP reference documentation says that every "container" element can take
an href attribute to make it come from another file. So you could modularize
your configuration files by making the platform-specific xep.xml files look

  <options href="xep-options.xml"/>
    <!-- platform specific fonts -->
  <languages href="xep-langs.xml"/>
