I have resumed working on the RTL issues and have updated this page
<http://wiki.contextgarden.net/RTL> on the context garden.  All
improvements and comments are welcome.

In addition, I am putting together a set of useful macros and settings for
Persian typesetting and releasing it on github
<https://github.com/bateni/dabeer>.  Perhaps, once I am happy with certain
things, I can ask Hans to consider including some parts as patches in
ConTeXt itself.
