That's fine.  Since Scheherazade comes with Graphite support, I just wanted to
rule out the possibility that it's the graphite2 shaper being used as opposed
to OT.  If you have the graphite2 shaper enabled (ie. configure
--enable-graphite2) and the font supports Graphite shaping, that backend is
preferred unless you specifically request backends, which you can also do by
setting HB_SHAPER_LIST env var.
