// This file contains a port of the reference implementation of the
// Bidi Parentheses Algorithm:
// The implementation in this file covers definitions BD14-BD16 and rule N0
// of UAX#9.
// Some preprocessing is done for each rune before data is passed to this
// algorithm:
// - opening and closing brackets are identified
// - a bracket pair type, like '(' and ')' is assigned a unique identifier that
// is identical for the opening and closing bracket. It is left to do these
// mappings.
// - The BPA algorithm requires that bracket characters that are canonical
// equivalents of each other be able to be substituted for each other.
// It is the responsibility of the caller to do this canonicalization.
// In implementing BD16, this implementation departs slightly from the "logical"
// algorithm defined in UAX#9. In particular, the stack referenced there
// supports operations that go beyond a "basic" stack. An equivalent
// implementation based on a linked list is used here.
// Bidi_Paired_Bracket_Type
// BD14. An opening paired bracket is a character whose
// Bidi_Paired_Bracket_Type property value is Open.
// BD15. A closing paired bracket is a character whose
// Bidi_Paired_Bracket_Type property value is Close.

// A bracket pair is a pair of characters consisting of an opening
// paired bracket and a closing paired bracket such that the
// Bidi_Paired_Bracket property value of the former equals the latter,
// subject to the following constraints.
// - both characters of a pair occur in the same isolating run sequence
// - the closing character of a pair follows the opening character
// - any bracket character can belong at most to one pair, the earliest possible one
// - any bracket character not part of a pair is treated like an ordinary character
// - pairs may nest properly, but their spans may not overlap otherwise
// Bracket characters with canonical decompositions are supposed to be
// treated as if they had been normalized, to allow normalized and non-
// normalized text to give the same result. In this implementation that step
// is pushed out to the caller. The caller has to ensure that the pairValue
// slices contain the rune of the opening bracket after normalization for
// any opening or closing bracket.
