A very interesting question! Next thing on my todolist is to handle 
tibetan. It seems to have the same kind of difficulty, and the rules for 
end of lines could be summarized as follows: you can end a line only on 
a space (which is rare) or after a certain character (tshegs, U0F0B). 
How could it be possible to handle this?

Thank you,
