No one from IBM (or from any other place) contacted me and offered help 
in working on Emacs support for bidirectional editing.  So it cannot be 
on my hands.

For the record--and I urge everybody to please listen carefully, because 
I'll only say that this once--I think I'm not up to this job: it's too 
huge and too above my head, as far as my knowledge, talents, and free 
time are considered.  However, after waiting for two years for someone to 
step forward and offer to work on this, I came to a sad conclusion that 
nothing is going to happen unless I do it myself.  So I'm doing it, as 
best as I can.  Alone.

P.S.  I should add right here and now that all the good people on the 
emacs-bidi mailing list (and elsewhere, where I discuss these matters 
from time to time) should not be offended by the above rant: I'm grateful 
for lost of useful inputs I always get when I ask some question or want 
to discuss some related issue.  Thanks a lot!
