Well, I'm not sure this would really fit into BrlAPI. Having it as a
library that uses BrlAPI seems just enough to me.

Which setup?  We will add in BrlAPI a way for client to get / set
parameters like 6/8 dot style, cursor style, ...

Not necessarily.  We BrlAPI people don't know much about Korean braille
etc, while Bill does.

Actually, the question is rather: where should the translation take

- In BrlTTY?  That means that the whole text will have to be transmitted
from the application to BrlTTY, and the application won't have control
on how it is browsed.

- In the application?  Then, I don't see why it should be in BrlAPI:
that can be left in an upper layer like gnome-braille.
