Actually, I ran into an example where it seems to make a difference:
I use my modified bidi xterm (I took xterm-156 from mandrake 8.1, that
also had the i18n patch applied, My modification was to run
fribidi_log2vis with the base direction NEUTRAL (instead of LTR).
However, numbers can cause a strange behaviour:
# What I write:
$ echo 1 
# What I get in the xterm (visual)
All of the characters are ASCII characters.
The reason I use NEUTRAL instead of LTR is because it makes more sense for
most uses. Otherwise I can't read long mainly-hebrew texts properly.
