On support for Ideographic Variation Sequences

Hi all,

I am now wondering how we can approach support for ideographic variation sequences
(IVS) in LibreOffice, which has been long requested as you can see at [1].
So far, having read [2] about Mozilla's case, I think HarfBuzz looks promising for
the purpose. And employing the library has already been mentioned [3] in somewhat
different context in this list.
Or is it desirable to port rather infant code for IVS support from AOO?
Any suggestion would be great, I wish to do hack if desired.
