Nadim proposed something along 'beacon', as in 'bicon', as in
'bidi con{sole,dom}'.  I like both.  'bicon' goes more with
'fribidi's, but as we converted freebidi to fribidi, we do bicon
to beacon too.  I'm with "beacon" then.  [Roozbeh,Behnam: And we
can call it 'faanoos' :)].

The font may be GPL.  We surely want to keep library code in
LGPL.  Application stuff can go with GPL or LGPL.

Not me ;-).  Behnam, can you give it a try?  Long time you have
not done these stuff.
