    Archaic Greek could be written right-to-left, left-to-right, or boustrophedon.

    I'm asking for technical advice as to how such variability in writing
    direction streams in the same script can be, and should be, handled in
    Unicode, and how it should be dealt with in a Unicode proposal.
