I'm now working to synchronize the emacs-unicode branch to
the latest HEAD code.  As there were many cosmetic and
restructuring changes in HEAD, it's not easy to adjust the
code of emacs-unicode.  I think it takes two or three weeks

After that, I can start working on bidi.  I'd like to
incorporate your reordering routine and my display routine
of emacs-bidi into the emacs-unicode branch instead of
directly into HEAD to avoid another synching labor.
