I think we are almost good now. There is only one serious FIXME left:

  /* FIXME: guess_segment_properties is BAD BAD BAD.
   * we need to get these properties with the LGSTRING. */
#if 1
  hb_buffer_guess_segment_properties (hb_buffer);
#else
  hb_buffer_set_direction (hb_buffer, XXX);
  hb_buffer_set_script (hb_buffer, XXX);
  hb_buffer_set_language (hb_buffer, XXX);
#endif

We need to know, for a given lgstring we are shaping:
* Its direction (from applying bidi algorithm). Each lgstring we are
  shaping must be of a single direction.
* Its script, possibly after applying something like:
  http://unicode.org/reports/tr24/#Common
* Its language, is Emacs allows setting text language (my understand is
  that it doesn’t). Some languages really need this for applying
  language-specfic features (Urdu digits, Serbian alternate glyphs, etc.).
