Re: "Eyebrow Repha" (Marathi and other languages)

reg. Eyebrow reph.

The eyebrow reph can be achieved with Unicode, using the
explicit half form syntax with ZWJ. See the Unicode standard
for details. Hence, I wouldn't introduce it as a separate
character. The ISCII standard uses the ra-nukta for this,
which is a bit unlucky, as this letter is intended for
representing a Dravidian (south indian) letter in Devanagari.

I am not aware of any implementor using it right now, but people
who claim to support Marathi should.
