Since we're not using polyglossia, should we be setting this variable 
ourselves?  I just now tried doing that:
and it seems to work.  However, I'm not sure how, without using 
Polyglossia, we should do this whenever we switch languages.  We never 
had to do that for other purposes--we just use
      {\RL{some right-to-left stuff}}

I guess we need to redefine \RL to be s.t. like this:

Right?  I tested this on a small example and it seems to work...  (email 
is wrapping the \renewcommand here)

laying around as I was minimizing the example.
