Indeed, GS looks correct (from my minimal knowledge of the script from
working on pango-graphite). Have you got pango-graphite installed?
(possibly it is just using the opentype tables, but I don't think
pango has the support for that yet).

fwiw there is a possibility that Java will support graphite in the
future (now that it is on the way to open source) but I wouldn't
expect that to happen too fast. The opentype support in ICU for that
script should come first.
