By bidi, I meant resolving the levels. Sorry if I've created confusion.
Some parts of bidi is done before line breaking, and some parts after.
This is the thing that's considered hard. Because with implicit bidi
support only, you can do the whole bidi after line breaking, and that will
create the same result.
