Bug#917909: [text-based installer] right-to-left writing direction broken

Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

While investigating an old bugreport regarding Hebrew, I found that RTL writing
direction is completely broken in the text-based installer
(writing direction seems left-to-right and text is aligned to the left).

That's also the case in Stretch, while it was ok in Jessie installer!

I will sent some screenshots to the bug later, to document it.

As we are near the freeze for Buster, it would probably be the best way to 
work around this, if we disable the RTL langugages completely in the text-based 
installer (since they are also supported there and it seems ok in the 
graphical installer) ?

This affects:	Arabic

I will point relevant people to this bug, to get opinions from mother-tongue 
speakers | readers ...
