>> 0B85, அ, a
>> 0B86, ஆ, A or aa
>> 0B88, ஈ, I or ii
>> 0B8A, ஊ, U or uu
Please use A, I, U 

(Rationale: I am seeing that there is no `oo' but only a `O'. With the
above choice, one can always enter a capitalized vowel and be assured
that the right thing will happen)

>> 0B99, ங, N^a or ~Na
Please use N^a. 

(Rationale: Better to start with an regular character than a punctuation
character)

>> 0B9E, ஞ, JNa or ~na
Please use JNa. 

(Rationale: Same as before)

>> 0BB5, வ, wa or va
We can use va.

(Rationale: Seems natural)

>> 0BB3, ள, La or lda
We can use La.

(Rationale: The above character doesn't sound like `lda' when spoken)

>> 0BB4, ழ,

The patch that you had sent earlier works. Could you please commit those
changes? 

Above character has two bindings - "za" or "Ja".
We can go with "za".  

(Rationale: This is how it's usually mapped by a layman even outside of
ta-itrans)

TIA,
Jambunathan K.
