Unfortunately, there is no documentation on writing modules. :-(.

I would expect Syriac modules to follow the pattern of Arabic fairly
closely, but certainly the Arabic modules are by no means the simplest

The Thai module was originally written to be a nice simple example,
but then people actually fixed it to be useable for displaying Thai...

If you have particular questions, I'd be more than happy to answer
them on this list.
