Just to nit-pick - Saurashtra isn't normally written in the Saurashtra
script, Northern Thai is normally written in the Thai script, not the
Tai Tham script, and the main script for Tai L may well be New Tai
Lue. Or am I partly wrong - have you now added line-breaking
dictionaries for Northern Thai?

I hope you haven't broken New Tai Lue support (probably not needed) by
adding a shaping engine for the current standard (Unicode up to 7.0)!
