That sounds like just what we need, then.  How 'bout providing
a (bidi-embed-string STR &optional DIRECTION) where DIRECTION works like
bidi-paragraph-direction (i.e. nil means auto-detect).

To me, in an L2R context, any buffer name should be displayed as
NAME<N>, regardless of whether NAME happens to be R2L or L2R (i.e. NAME
should be an "embedded-string").

Great, thanks,
