Visarga is combining, so also, ideally, "half"-visarga (ardha-visarga) too.
But Kannada 1/2-visarga is recently encoded as non-combining,
so I guess that's followed in Telugu 1/2-visarga too.
These letters are so rare in usage, I guess combining or noncombining is ok.

Nakarapollu "virama on n" and Valapala-gilaka "rattle on the right side"
are usually combining, and cannot occur word-initially.
Like the combining nakarapollu and valapalagilaka in TeluguTeX,
they are available as combining in Kannada script as well.
For Kannada nakarapollu and valapalagilaka, see page 2 of
Kannada file can be added with commonly used conjuncts.
Telugu script pdf does not exist yet. May be Nagarjuna and Suresh
can create a file and it will be useful with a set of commonly used conjuncts.
Many Indic scripts have commonly used conjuncts. For example:
(Currency numerators need to be encoded)
(The letter NNNA needs to be encoded here, I've some samples).
It will be great if Kannada and Telugu experts here
can give us a list and glyphs of commonly used conjuncts.
We can get it in Dr. Thomas Pedersen's site also.
