If you can do it, that'll be fantastic. And while you're perusing the code, perhaps you can see if it is also possible to allow the user to decide whether they want the bidi control characters to be visible or not

Could be.  I'd need to carefully review the code to say for sure.
Originally, the regexp which defines where paragraph begins was
customizable, but it led to grave bugs, so I removed that.  Maybe a
more restricted facility could avoid such pitfalls.
