Thanks for your work Behdad! I checked out some Devanagari and Kannada
samples and all was fine (I don't really know the scripts, but rendering
looks exactly like Pango with old HarfBuzz).

By the way, when do you think will HarfBuzz be ready to ship as a
standalone library in distributions? I'm working on the subtitle
rendering library libass and extended it to use HarfBuzz-ng for shaping
(this is a GSoC project). I definitely want to avoid including a HB copy
in my repository.

At the moment the API and its semantics still seem to be rather
unstable, is this going to change any soon?
