Answering my own question here: yes, I did miss something.  We do call
the 'draw' method of the font driver, in w32term.c.  However, the
Windows implementation of this is on w32font.c, and it calls
ExtTextOutW, not ScriptTextOut.  Which might be a problem, hmm...

As for ScriptLayout, it is only needed for logical-to-visual
reordering of _items_, whereas we always pass to Uniscribe a chunk of
text that can only become a single item.
