OK. In my opinion, this was not directly d-i related as this is not a
thing (getting bidified slang in testing) that the d-i team really has
control on.

uh, I was missing something here. So, in 5 days, if libfribidi0 is
installed by base-installer, we will have a RTL 2nd stage, then?

If so, the question narrows down to : how to have libfribidi0
installed by base-installer....

PS : while I am at this BiDi thing-->I have read, by digging on
arabeyes mailing lists, that the new libfribidi is about to be
released. This version is supposed to include shaping support directly
and, according to the discussions there, libfribidi shaping will just
take place before applications internal shaping. I'll try to follow
this closely, though I will be less available during summer time.
