Don't worry; Yesterday I have managed to make some time and made a
language to range lookup table, so when somebody will try to test a
certain language he will be able to strip in only the glyphs needed
for that language. Also I made a language 2 font look up table.
I only need to make the script that links all the pieces together and
makes a set of fonts starting from a language and that will include
only one posible way to resolve a certain glyph in all the fonts; this
will allow us to make sure that what we see is indeed what we assume
it is (I had a really huge surprise when fc-cache :lang=XX showed
something while the real font was something else.
