This is the first time I've observe RTL display in Emacs.  I don't see
any way to detect the magic character that specifies it.  (I am using
a terminal as usual.)

I think we need to provide a way to make them visible.
Perhaps it should even be the default.

Also, is there a way to disable bidi in the current buffer?
If not, I think we need one.

I think we need to add this.
