Now, that's the confusing part!

Currently there are three OT Indic codebases, all derived from one originally.


Qt / old HarfBuzz:

And there's ICU's.

Jonathan Kew is working on integrating that with new HarfBuzz and I think he 
started with the ICU one.  We need to merge the ICU and Pango one since both 
have been getting bug fixes over the years.
