Probably.  It depends on what people think of it and how well it works.
There is a bug with Beta transliteration of polytonic Greek that I
believe may be caused by ICU 2.0 itself and not my transliterator, but
I'm not sure yet.

It acts like any other option filter, but it can work with any module.
However, you'll need to use a non-Latin module since the transliterators
to non-Latin scripts are hidden.  Hebrew, Greek, Russian, Arabic, etc.
should all work well.
