Arabic support in m17n's emacs code was very usable and almost complete.
There weren't that many issues left with it (most were minor) from a user's
prospective, our only concern was making sure that excellent effort made
its way into emacs' main trunk and I can see that there is movement in
that direction which I too applaud and highly encourage (for whatever
it's worth :-)

For those that have not received all the emails, please read the following
thread (courtesy of the emacs' mailing-lists) --


Any other Arabic user comments (ie. Arabeyes people) ?

PS: Thanks Alex again for getting the ball rolling...
