The work in the old emacs-bidi involved the following:
(1) Reordering characters (bidi.el)
(2) Caching re-ordered glyphs (bidi.c and xdisp.c)
(3) Reversing a line orientation (xterm.c), i.e. set the
beginning of line at the right edge of a window.

In the CVS version,
(1) Reordering and caching are replaced by Eli's new code.
(2) Reversing a line orientation is not yet mereged in.

I'll work on (2) soon, but for the moment, we must
concentrate on making (1) work.
