The Malayalam reph is to be placed logically in the beginning of
syllable and positioned above-base. But it is now seen at the end of the
syllable even as hb-ot-shape-complex-indic.cc says:
/* There are two kinds of characters marked as Repha:
* - The ones that are GenCat=Mn are already positioned visually,
ie. after base. (eg. Khmer)
* - The ones that are GenCat=Lo is encoded logically, ie.
beginning of syllable. (eg. Malayalam)
Meanwhile old harfbuzz and pango indic shaper get it right as above-base.
