Right-to-left languages and

Hello, I'm porting a few games to Love2D and one of them has an Arabic localization.
My question is: does support RTL languages?
What I mean is, typically with LTR we wrap and break the string from the right side:
But with RTL the wrapping has to be done from the left:
This has to do with how the characters flow and is independent of the text alignment.
Any tips on this would be much appreciated!

Did you ever have luck getting RTL text printed properly in Love2D? I was considering using Love2D for a project using Persian, but it would require RTL support.

To be honest, I just made sure that we don't have to wrap the text our games.
The "wrapping" issue mentioned above might only be a problem if you have blocks of text.
It's also possible to wrap the text using Lua as well.
