    Exactly! This is why I'm in favour of doing selection
    by glyph. With no Arabic or Indian developers we're
    bound to get ourselves into trouble by being over-
    ambitious. I really do want codepoint selection too
    but I don't think it's realistic to think we as
    western language only people can get it right.
