I've also been looking closely at Unicode in LC 7, as have a couple of my students. As of DP2 it's pretty stable, and for the most part unicode "just works". It's almost like magic.

There are still some problems with right-to-left languages, and some insert cursor weirdnesses. See e.g., bugs http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=12177, http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11986 and http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=12064.

I've been following Dar's posts with interest.
