bug#27526: 25.1; Nonconformance to Unicode bidirectionality algorithm du

Subject: bug#27526: 25.1; Nonconformance to Unicode bidirectionality algorithm due to paragraph separator
Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2017 18:10:19 +0300

Is there any progress with allowing the user to customize the end-of-paragraph mark to be the OS paragraph separator character?

Sorry, I don't see why the exact way how to customize this is so
important.  glyphless-char-display-control is a user-level
customizable variable, not some obscure feature that requires Lisp
programming to tailor it to your needs.

It does have its private customizations, but this one isn't one of
them, I don't see why it should be.  The characters of the Cf general
category are quite a few, and Emacs handled them all the same, because
they all have the same nature.
