Hello Pravin. I would advise going by the standard. It was unavoidable that the
chillu encoding would break some things and this was one of them. 

But if Lohit also continues to cater to the old system, then people will still
continue to use it and not move to the current system at all, especially if you
do not provide the current standard. "Backward compatibility" does *not* mean
not moving forward at all! And always in software backward compatibility can
only be provided to a certain extent, not permanently. 

The standard tells you to do 0D7B CHILLU_N + 0D4D VIRAMA + 0D31 RRA to get
stacked chillu-N with RRA below. If one does not follow the standard, then what
is the point in the standard?

If I am not convincing you, please ask on the indic at unicode list.
