Well, you could always reverse engineer HarfBuzz!

Just a reminder though.  You would be using a permutation of the
canonical combining classes - for Tai Tham, U+1A60 should be treated as
ccc=254, not ccc=0, and for Tibetan you would need to ensure that the
vowels below (ccc=132) came before the vowels above (ccc=130).
