I think the akruti based non-std*.ttf files are enough. We should not
support ISCII anymore. ISCII > unicode is a good idea, but not unicode
> ISCII. Your suggestion falls in the latter category. More fonts,
and more apps supporting ISCII means you are perpetuating a standard
which does not deserve support even longer. A minimal free font for
the purpose already exists, and so does your excellent script to
convert ISCII to Unicode and back; that will do.
