Do let me know if any help i can do in adding indic support. I am quite
interested in it.
But not getting proper start.
The things we can improve in old harfbuzz is off course is, detecting
syllable boundaries, there are some exceptions across scrip for forming
Adding ZWNJ also added complexity to it.
And best thing we can do this time, as behdad also mentioned, though
script share many common properties still exceptions causes problem.
Different function for each script, or for handling exceptions so will
be very helpful.
