I think this was discussed a while back but never implemented.  I've now
marked out 3 right to left modules with "Direction=RtoL".  That include
the BHS, the AraSVD, and the Peshitta (still beta).  This is so that
front end developers can figure out for themselves how best to display
such texts.

I'll look into the problem with the Peshitta this weekend.  On Windows,
at least, Syriac is not recognized as a right to left script, so I am
hoping that explicitly adding the direction before each verse will fix
the problem.
