Library is done as far as I'm concerned.  I want to add UTF-8 features,
but not in the first release.

No timeline right now, as I don't have time to work on it :(.

Porting the command-line tool to non-deprecated API, and writing some
high-level documentation about how to use the new API/

You can port the command-line tool to new API.  I'm here to help.  I can
write a general overview of what needs to be done after you study the
code.  I have in fact written that to the list I guess.  In short, you
need to see what deprecated fribidi_log2vis() is doing, and do that in
the command-line tool, but also handling line breaking that
fribidi_log2vis() doesn't.
