Latin-Devanagari transform should not force simplified nasalization

Description (last modified by pedberg) (diff)
From Lee Collins:
- Use Latin-Devanagari to convert "añc aṅg aṇd amb and"
- Expected result: "अञ्च् अङ्ग् अण्द् अम्ब् अन्द्"
- Actual result: "अञ्च् अंग् अण्द् अंब् अंद्"
The actual result is neither consistent nor correct. In some cases the class nasal is retained, e.g. añc > अञ्च्, in others it is converted to anusvara, e. g. ang > अंग्. The transform should respect the latin transliteration. If the latin representation indicates strict nasalization by use of one of the homorganic class nasals letters, it should be retained. If the latin representation indicates simplified nasalization by use of ṁ, that should be converted to anusvara. See discussion at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_15919 for treatment of anusvara in ISO 15919. The default transform should not switch the nasalization option indicated in the latin transliteration.
- Use Latin-Devanagari to convert "hūṃ"
- Expected result: "हूं"
- Actual result: "हूम्̣"
ṃ is a common alternate for ṁ used by in the IAST transliteration scheme for Devanagari. म्̣ makes no sense. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_15919
