I've done as you suggested and am getting what seem to be evidence of
communication, Emacs to m17n, for Tai Tham text.  Everything was broken
at the first attempt - infinite loop in Emacs, and I think m17n is
giving up on my instructions.  I'll just have to approach the full
design bit by bit. I aped burmese.el for tai-tham.el.

Having been forced to recompile emacs for myself, it will be less
awkward to put monitoring in.  I nearly missed the need to obtain the
m17n and libotf developer packages - it was only the display of
configuration options selected by configure that alerted me.

Richard.
