How about

  (if t


Seriously, though: why do you need any conditions here?  An LRM will
have no effect if str is not reordered, so why not put it there

But if you insist on doing that only when str might need that, then I
think you want to check each character in str with
get-char-code-property, like this:

  (get-char-code-property (aref str i) 'bidi-class)

If this returns 'R for any character, it means the string _might_ need
LRM to be appended.
