It is very impressive.  I input an IDS for an as yet unencoded character 
slated for Extension H (⿰尚丁) and was immediately rewarded with a 
beautiful ideograph.

The combos Abraham Gross tried are more complex than that.  I'd say the 
tool passes the tests!

(I would guess that Wáng Yifán uses component stroke counts in order to 
algorithmically determine the relative heights and widths of the 
components and may well have also assigned "classes" for each 
component's base, top, and so forth to determine how those components 
could be kerned or adjusted for the optimal fit.)

Maybe in the future there will be a conversion feature in a plain text 
editor which would automatically generate ideographs based on IDSs for 
the display.
