The Omega TeX Tifinagh looks a lot better than the other two samples
of Tifinagh I've seen. Their font designer does beautiful work in
other scripts as well.

I'm sure the whole crew will be delighted to talk to you. I met them
at a Unicode conference in San Jose some years ago, where they were
trying to attract a little attention. I steered them to Don Knuth,
who was also attending.

Talk to Dominik Wujastyk, also. I believe he has tried Omega TeX. You
have his listings of (2 or more)-script versions of TeX, I trust?
