I'm looking into vertical text layout in Qt, and the
only things I've been able to find are this old patch:
https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/73319/2 and the relevant
https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-529 .

I am wondering whether:

* there have been some other efforts since then that I just didn't manage
to find?

* the patch mentioned in the diff's comments ("don't worry, I have a
similar patch for HB-NG bridge in my queue") landed somewhere?

* and whether this patch was a move in the right direction. If so,
I might want to take a stab at reviving it, if not, I wonder what the
right direction would be.
