A few days ago we had a misunderstanding -- I proposed the feature
which you've now implemented, but you proposed a different feature.
You proposed that Emacs would examine the text as actually reordered
by display, and present that as a string in the display order.

That was a different thing from what I had proposed.
But I think it is a good idea.
