Thanks for the explanation.

I see. Well, I suppose I should put it like this then:
1. Emacs should then refuse to render Devanagari without the required
   libraries, not render them incorrectly.
2. I have those libraries installed on my Debian Sid machine, and
   Emacs still doesn't render them correctly. I don't suppose this
   belongs here- I'll head over to bugs.debian.org.

Thanks.
