Just a few comments on these patches:

 - We really should have the LGPL license header in all source
   files. (The Tamil module isn't the only place in Pango
 - I'll repeat my standard statement about coding style and modules:

   While coding style in each module is up to the maintainer
   of that module, I think it would be nice if as many modules

   To be consistent with the rest of Pango.

I have no comments on the code right now - it looks pretty

I think we need a text file describing:

 - Where these fonts come from
 - What the license on them is.

Heh, well that's a rather big job to do just for fun :-)
But if you want to look into doing that, that would be great.

If you provide a README file for the fonts and add the LGPL
headers to the source files, I'll go ahead and commit these

Thanks for the contribution,
