Comment (by mani_monaj):

 Well, It's been about 18 months that I am working with WP in RTL. I tested
 Gengo, The ‎problem with RTL is more than just direction.. Alignment,
 Numbering and Possessions ‎are important too.‎

 There is a great idea behind Gengo for providing Multi Language blog with
 Wordpress, ‎but it’s not sufficient for the look of the blog. I
 suggest following Ryan’s solution and ‎putting RTL support inside the
 core of Wordpress.‎

 You know, RTLing wordpress is not just for themes, it’s also for admin
 area. When ‎translated strings loads, they must have correct CSS behind,
 to make admin area clean for ‎users.‎

 These are essential features that wordpress needs to be fully RTL

 ‎1) Providing additional CSS to make admin area RTL when needed. (Item
 no.5 in Ryan’s ‎gist)‎
 ‎2) Providing a framework for themers to put some standared RTL rules
 and make their ‎themes RTL ready. e.g.‎

 p { direction: rtl; text-align: right}‎

 ‎(item no.4 in Ryan’s gist)‎

 ‎3) Providing a framework for themers to make their themes compatible
 with different ‎languages (item no.3 in Ryan’s gist)‎
