I'm well aware of your great work (I've contributed to its testing :-)
It seems dormant at the moment and it would be nice to have a clear
direction statement and a proposed "completion date" ;-)

I simply saw that the "live" emacs version (21.3.+) was lacking Arabic
support and opted to include it myself (wasn't sure what issues are
involved in using your code (license, etc) and opted to create the
patch myself - wasn't sure why the leim/quail support wasn't already
included into emacs' main trunk, it should have been).

Comparing the two files - yours looks fine too.  Do please include
