Synchronizing emacs-unicode to HEAD will take a few weeks
more.  After that, I'll take a look at Eli's code and decide
what to do.  In any cases, I will install the changes for
BIDI in the branch emacs-unicode-2 because the current codes
of emacs-bidi depends on automatic-composition facitliy to
display Arabic and Hebrew, and that exists only in
emacs-unicode (and in emacs-bidi) version.  I'd like to
avoid the extra work of installing automatic-composition for
the current HEAD.

FYI, the automatic-composition is to call various character
composition functions from the dipslay routine dynamically
so that we don't have to run XXX-compose-region on file
reading and character inputting.
