Re: Re: Vim-6.1.358 Arabic patch

Nadim, just passing my exchange with Bram on your patch along (below).
My take is that Arabic support is relatively important to him, but so
are a bunch of other things. 

I think we're much farther along than when we started. The patch has
gotten a lot more exposure and we've managed to work out a few kinks.
If you don't mind continuing to sync I promise to stick with you and
keep including it in my packages until it finally gets picked up. At
least on Windows, our project will always have an updated Vim
installer so one platform's users can have Arabic.

I'll roll another one with 1.14 tonight, thanks for your effort!
