Looking through some old Linotype-Paul documentation for extended Arabic, Fiona Ross notes
a variant glyph form for the isolated and final gaf character (U+06AF) used for Kurdish.
This takes the form of the typical gaf, but with the small script element normally found
as part of the isolated and fina; Arabic kaf (U+0643), as shown in this sketch:
I wonder if anyone has any insight on whether this form is still in use, favoured or not
favoured, and whether it might be appropriate for any languages other than Kurdish?
