I won't disclose what scripts I use in my passwords, as that would
reduce the security level - I well could only use digits then, which
nobody would consider a good idea.
In fact, I would recommend to use characters from different scripts in a
But directionality should be no problem at all, as I remember which keys
to press in which order. It's not displayed, so why should I care?

But I hope that whatever processing is done to the password to come to
its hashed value, it should be always the very same processing, so that
the same character sequence will result in the same hash on any device.
