I think I got it for the ICU layout.  I haven't
looked into the AAT question raised by Jjgod, though.
In the while() loop in

static void*
loadOTfont(PlatformFontRef fontRef, XeTeXFont font, Fixed
scaled_size, const char* cp1)

the statement
  goto next_option;
is nested one step deeper for "vertical" than for
other options.  Jonathan, is this correct?
So a workaround for the current codebase is to put
either ':' or ';' at the end of "vertical".
work with fontspec v1.13a, and there seems no need
for me to keep v1.10 around anymore.
