ICU Layout Engine API on top of HarfBuzz shaping library
icu-le-hb is a library implementing the ICU Layout Engine icu-le API using external HarfBuzz library for implementation. This is useful as a compatibility layer to make applications using ICU Layout Engine to use HarfBuzz without porting them to use the HarfBuzz API.
The code is mostly a trimmed down version of icu/source/layout, with all shapers stripped out, and HarfBuzz integrated.
