Right. Basically the current Indic shaper is at best to be looked at as a
framework to build the Indic shaper. I know at least three major issues with
it, that can be fixed easily. But I've been holding back until I can at least
make an extensive-enough test suite that would enable me to quantify my changes.
Will be working on these soon.
