    Hi Havoc,

    Thanks for weighing in here. :-) One quick followup.

    To help me understand your recommendation, could you confirm which set of
    consistent character boundaries the Pango implementation targets?

    Of the three alternatives described in the Unicode book, I think we've
    started converging on a rough-but-not-overly-literate consensus that the
    least preferable option (for us) would be handling atomic character

    Or is that the kind of thing that Pango wants to do for us?
