That implementation looks very different from the C and Java versions.
I can’t tell by looking at a glance if it has been updated for the
changes in Unicode 8.0. But it definitely will not pass the tests in
BidiCharacter.txt because it lacks support for paired brackets.
I just finished writing a reference implementation in Lua which is
a line by line port of the Java reference implementation and passes
nearly all tests in BidiCharacter.txt.
I now need to make the updates to support the changes in Unicode 8.0,
