Yes, he and I have having fun offline debating his identity :-)

Hmmm... I perceive you don't approve of how I've been using my time.
You're right: I should spend less time replying on this list and more
time on the projects in my yearly objectives ;-)

I have been corresponding with the original inquirer offline to find out
more precisely what the issues and requirements of the users he's
representing are. It's more of a priority for me to discover that than
to discuss details regarding Uniscribe behaviour I don't actually know
about for certain (and that I can't change in the immediate future).

At present, I don't know the answer. I know this is something we have
intended to support, but I don't get that behaviour on the particular
system I'm using at the moment. I will keep it in mind as an issue to
review in the next version of our Indic shaping engine.
