A recent (may 2004) communication and references to Garshuni manuscripts :

/Le type linguistique garchouni du Mont-Liban (15^ème siècle) d'après
les mss. Vat ar. 640 et Borg. ar. 136 d'Ibn el-Qila-^c i-./
« Danach widmete Naoum Faik seine
Zeit der eigenen Zeitschrift »Bethnahrin». Die
Besonderheit der Publikationen von Naoum Faik war,
dass die Beiträge in türkischer bzw. arabischer Sprache
jedoch in Syro-Aramäischen Alphabet. Dieser Stil ist u.a.
als Garschuni bekannt und war vor und nach dem I.

die im Osmanischen Reich lebten, weit verbreitet. »
So it seems like it was quite common in the Ottoman Empire before and
after WWI among intellectual circles.
I think Google (English, French and German) will reveal a wealth of
material or citations to material.

I know of a least one such a letter by memory (because it
is easy to remember) : a rectangle for emphatic s. But it is
debatable (only Hanoteau gives it, I think) and thus was
not a priority to code in our first (modern-day) Tifinagh

I'm not sure I understand.
