Hmm, I really think that in a Thai environment the word movement
functions should automatically handle Thai, without special
activation.  In general, a hook into forward-word and friends to
handle scripts which don't use a space for word boundaries is a must
IMHO as soon as we have native Unicode support.

As a compromise I suggest that M-f and M-b are mapped to
thai-forward-word and thai-backward-word, respectively, as soon as we
enter the Thai environment.  This should be a two-liner or so for the
experienced Emacs Lisp hacker (which I'm not, unfortunately).

Any Thai users on the list which actually want to test those
