Okay .... here is what I have collected. Maybe someone more
knowledgeable can comment:

In principle we have to:
- define an encoding LGA Local Georgian A (maybe there will be B or
  something, no idea) with locations for the different letters
- if the above encoding is different from the encoding of the mxedruli
  fonts used in the document we have to generate a virtual font recoding
  the mxedruli fonts to the new LGA encoding
- write an utf8x input encoding definition and compile it into the
  necessary .def files using the makeunidef.pl script

Any comments on that?

Should I contact Dominique Unruh from ucs/ut8x? Anyone else who can
probably help?

Best wishes

A street dance. The two partners approach from opposite directions and
try politely to get out of each other's way. They step to the left,
step to the right, apologise, step to the left again, apologise again,
bump into each other and repeat as often as unnecessary.
