As far as the required classical Tamil orthography is concerned, in terms of
correct display of ligatures etc, this font is OK, but there are some problems
with two Tamil numeral glyphs in this font. I'll clarify that in bug #807068.

One more point. The descender for this font is -380 as against -419 for the
regular Lohit Tamil font. I think it would be good to have a uniform descender
so the two fonts are mutually metrically compatible. Lohit Tamil 2.5.0 had -380
only. Is there a reason that the updated version of Lohit Tamil (not Classical)
has as larger descender? Do you want me to file a separate bug for that?
