I would, again, recommend you download the reference code and go
by that as a golden model - that is a more correct approach.

I continue to see value in comparing against the Unicode reference
code as that is _the_ golden model (else the spec is incorrect).

Sure, go for it - but I would recommend doing it once EVERYTHING is

Well, I would suggest we ping simon & co. post the following issues
getting fully addressed and solved,

 a. Fix all crashes (if any remain)
 b. Fix any Bidi issues and that dancing ':'
 c. Add the appropriate buttons to disable shaping and bidi
 d. Clean-up the code to where you are comfortable with it
    being consumed publicly.
 e. Have an idea of (but not fix) what can be done with regard
    to that space after LAM+ALEF combining so we can engage
    Simon in a dialog to fix it post patch inclusion (ie. how
    best to undisplay a character location in visual mode).
