    Archaic Greek exhibits variable glyph stance, that is, glyphs can be
    flipped horizontally or even vertically, usually dependent upon the
    direction of the writing stream.

    How should variable glyph stance for the same characters in the same
    script be dealt with in Unicode and in a Unicode proposal?
