I'm catching up on mail, so I might be responding to something that has
already been decided otherwise, but since `string-mark-left-to-right'
still seems to exist in the sources, I'm guessing it's still the
preferred solution.  :-)

Looking at the code, it just appends "\x200e" to the end of r2l strings,
right?  This means that for Gnus to just bind `gnus-tmp-subject-or-nil'
to `(string-mark-left-to-right gnus-tmp-subject-or-nil)' won't work --
the subjects are liable to be chopped off by length restriction specs.
So this will probably have to be special-cased somewhere in the
format-spec machinery, which should be possible without wreaking too
much havoc.

But it's unlikely that this will work properly for people who have
already customised their `gnus-summary-format-line', since that may have
to change.  I'll see what I can come up with...
