Cool.  I actually passed my Malayalam corpus (extracted out of Wikipedia)
through our code and looks like we are failing on about 14 percent compared to
Uniscribed.  Which is expected since we don't support pre-base reordering
consonants, and as you note our Ra classification seems to be wrong.  Over the
next few weeks we get to focus on scripts other than Devanagari and hammer
them down one by one.

Thanks :-).  I cannot stress this enough: Jonathan Kew and I contributed
equally to this work.
