I have been reviewing the code, and I don't find a relationship between
codepoint ranges and all the unicode scripts in any part of the code.
The hb_unicode_get_script_nil function, which seems to be the internal
one, is empty. Does it mean that one needs icu or glib to compile harfbuzz?
Would it be that hard to make a lookup a table with Unicode ranges and
scripts to not having to use external libraries? Or isn't it that easy?
