If L2R users don't want bidirectional support any place near them, to
the degree that they are unwilling to help make it better at the cost
of some moderate effort, please tell so now.  I will then rip out
everything I did, and will forbid the FSF to ever use that code in any
version of Emacs they distribute.  That won't make up for the 2 years
of efforts I invested in making this happen, but at least I will cut
my losses and won't have to go through the ordeal of arguing with one
David Kastrup anymore.
