There are some means where a dictionary can specify the internally
associated script type, however, I forgot how's that supposed to work
(i.e. how exactly the ExtraLanguage Name and ScriptType properties are
to be specified in a dictionary) and the sample mentioned in the bug
doesn't download for me.. Please see

My guess (didn't try) would be in dictionaries.xcu

 <node oor:name="ServiceManager">
    <node oor:name="Dictionaries">
    <node oor:name="ExtraLanguages">
        <node oor:name="ExtraLanguage" oor:op="fuse">
            <prop oor:name="Name" oor:type="xs:string">
                <value>Language UI name</value>
            <prop oor:name="ScriptType" oor:type="xs:int">

ScriptType value 3 here means CTL. The values are explained in
officecfg/registry/schema/org/openoffice/VCL.xcs under
<group oor:name="ExtraLanguage">
