This font is not ready for prime time at all, it's little more than a work
in progress. The bulk of the glyphs provide a nice foundation for what
_could_ become a nice font one day, but that day is not today ;-)

I would strongly advise against investing a lot of time with Neirizi and  
luatex at
the moment.

Vafa, do you have a parent to that link? I'm wondering if this is perhaps  
not an official release but that the link has somehow leaked.
