    I am working on using the Uniscribe windows library to give us
    support for complex scripts and this will include proper line
    breaking and justification for any languages supported by the
    Uniscribe (which I believe includes Thai) on Windows.

    The segmentation method is actually located in the
    gr_Graphics::canBreakAt(). It is possible that the we will need to
    change the input to this method to suppor Thai; please have a look
    and let me know what changes should be made.
