[XeTeX] Polyglossia problems with package lastpage

 François Charette has done some changes/redefinitions in \@arabic
macro for RTL languages in polyglossia and I told him that there is no
need for such change/redefinition as bidi makes sure that section
numbers and anything that needs to use
 arabic counter, is done properly. I think chaning/redefining \@arabic
counter would have some side effects. For instance, I think if you
redefine \@arabic the way polyglossia has done and then you use
algorithm package to typeset algorithms,
you no longer would get line numbers for the algorithm you typeset and
so you have to modify algorithm package too, so my point is eventually
that \@arabic should not be changed in any way as bidi makes sure that
everything is done properly.

Best wishes,
