I see. Attaching the ruby changes the line height, so I assume the
bounding box for the character+ruby compound is adjusted accordingly. In
that case, would it be possible to force using a vertical layout for
ruby? I guess if \ruby inherit the text orientation from the main text,
this will be less straight-forward...

Thank you.
