You can use our developer mailing list (reasonably low volume), and if
you find a bug, file it at http://bugzilla.abisource.com  - mailing list
info at http://abisource.com/developers/

For the complex scripts, it would be great to know if it behaves the way
a native user would want it to behave - for instance, no core abi devs
are CJK natives so we can type characters from a char map but have no
idea what is "right" and "wrong" WRT results.

As he lay there in bed
Looping 'round in his head
