still puzzling

things like this (imo) conform that the ability to typeset in multiple directions not means that one claim to have a multilingual tex  

the problem is that there's always a mixture between this auto r/l stuff and explicit r/l stuff and one never knows (also depends on the otp's it seems) what happens: now we can have situations that the input parser reverse things that are already reversed and one never knows why/where (since those opt's have kind of unpredictable side effects (apart from bugs - i just ran out of mem again) 

figure [num1] . [num2] . [num3] 

should come out as 

 [num3] . [num2] . [num1] erugif

depending on when an otp decides that it should stop we get something else In any case, the num snippets needs to be otp'd in order to get proper arab, at the same time there's this *dir stuff, ...  

(omega was never made for such things, only simple docs with straightforward input, not too much macro package stuff involved)
