  I'll wait for your update :-)

  That's indeed another point, maybe even more important.  As Mojca
mentioned, all the patterns for Modern Indic scripts come from
OpenOffice, and are in fact written by a single person.  I believe it is
really better if we can keep them in sync with OpenOffice, and reflect
modifications that would be made there; and they need to have different
files anyway.

> Arthur and Mojca, what do you think?

  It's a waste of time.
