I happen to be a documentation freak, and tried to do my best in
documenting everything related to bidi.  If you can suggest specific
changes to the user manual or NEWS about this, please do.  Saying in
the manual that some feature "means trouble" is not something we use
to do, because users will say "if it's trouble, why don't you fix
it?".  We need to find a way of saying something useful that will help
users nonetheless.  Suggestions are welcome.
