Here is one example: in Emacs Lisp source code, I want every Lisp string
to be treated as a single bidi segment (paragraph).  Whichever way this
is done, these segments ought to correspond well (or exactly) to what
font-lock-mode marks with font-lock-string-face.  In particular, the
bidi segmentation should not be confused by stuff like escaped \" chars.
