I am not getting involved in this language bashing party (unless it's
Perl vs. Python ;) -- but seriously though, from what I understand from
PuTTY's authors (search the list archives here for previous discussions
and threads), they want a BiDi implementation that is OS-agnostic. That
essentially means that whatever MS provides is a no-no. Else, it would
have been implemented a long time ago ;)
