Response to Kumar

I agree with most of what Kumar has said.  I would, however, like to keep
kS and sri, as they tend to be useful.

Obviously, there is no ideal solution.  Everyone has a slightly different
view.  I see the consensus as follows:

1. Use an 8-bit set, like INaimathi.
2. Keep the grantha characters.
3. Do not keep the old-style ligatures (lai, etc.)
4. Keep the final consonants (with the puLLi).

Note that this is just about exactly what Muthu's font already has.  Why
not just settle on it as a standard?  Anything we decide will go by the
boards, anyway, when unicode becomes universally implemented.
