Palash Ray commented on PDFBOX-4189:

Thanks a lot guys, for the detailed comments. It seems that there is some more 
work for me to ensure that this patch fits in into the broader scheme of 
things. I am ready to work with you to make this happen. I think PdfBox is a 
great piece of software, and I am committed to make it more feature rich. This 
particular feature is imporant to support any Indian or South East Asian 
Language. So, in my perspective, I would like to make it happen.


John, thanks specially for taking the time out to explain the architecture. Let 
me do a bit of refactoring, and incorporate your suggestions. I will let you 
know how that goes. I plan to handle subsetting.

> Implemented proper rendering of Indian languages, which need extensive Glyph 
> substitution. The GSUB table has been read and used effectively to replace
