I gave up waiting for this to materialize, and decided to roll my own,
highly non-academic, extremely amateurish incremental algorithm.  I 
simply could no longer explain to myself why Emacs still doesn't support 
bidi, more than 2 years after we started seriously discussing that.

I have a prototype code that is almost finished, and plan to begin
testing it in a few weeks.  It's a stand-alone implementation for now,
but it's written with Emacs as its primary client, and should plug in 
neatly into the code that generates glyph matrices from buffer text.

Thanks for the pointer, I will look that up.
