Thank you for testing it.  I'll commit that change soon.

The current descriptions for *-itrans input methods are what
generated automatically from the corresponding mapping
table, so they may not be sufficient for users.  Thank you

tamil-itrans.  By the way, isn't it necessary to have a
column for dependent vowels?  Or, is to obvious for users
from independent vowels?
