That is very nice piece of code; for what it is worth, I think this
would be worth incorporating into fribidi.

The Pango high level code will not do that (there is only that much that
can be generalised into a library), but in this regard Emacs is not
unique; there are other applications that have complex demands which can
only be satisfied by their own layout engine. However, scripting engine
can provide a low-level api that makes it possible to plug it into that
engine. Pango has a low level api that is quite usable and if it does
not entirely suit your needs as is, Behdad is a very reasonable guy :).
I am going to shut up now.
