[Tugindia] Devnag LyX

 at Sarai, there's been a discussion on expanding the reach of devnag 
LaTeX. One of the ideas is to get LyX to support devnag. AS we know, LyX 
is a WYSIWYM GUI for LaTeX.
 This means getting the user to type in devnagari using a key-layout 
like traditional WYSIWYGs. A different screen font (as available with X) 
could be used for this. Thus, we could get the quality of LaTeX at the 
backend and native input at the frontend. I know, this may mean less to 
some of us used to velthius transliteration but I think it will be 
useful. Many technical issues will be involved.
 What is the lists feedback? I suppose discussion on this should 
continue over the long-term on devnag-general or developers channel. I 
need some technical inputs also.
