Great work and congratulations to both Behdad and Jonathan! We people
are always here in case you need something [and Behdad, you still owe

Um really? Even Unicode has a separate Indic list, and it might be
useful in the future, but seeing as there isn't too much traffic so

is future need for separating the lists, I suppose we could re-create
harfbuzz-indic again?
