Kashida justification in XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX

In some cursive scripts such as Persian or Arabic, kashida is used to create justification. In this type of justification characters are elongated rather than expanding spaces between words. The kashida justification in xepersian has many bugs. Also it has problems with some fonts. The xepersian-hm package was the first attempt to fix these bugs in xepersian, which uses the XeTeX engine. This package extends the kashida justification to be used with the LuaTeX engine, too. Explanation of the package name: Negar, in Persian, is the present stem of negaashtan meaning to design, to paint, to write; and as a noun it means "sweetheart, idol, beloved, figuratively referring to a beautiful woman, pattern, painting, and artistic design".
