Will the Android app ever support right-to-left languages (e.g. Hebrew and Arabic)?

The app supports Unicode characters, but the paragraph direction is left-to-right and the text is left-aligned. Will this ever be fixed?

To understand the issue, this is how the Fastmail app handles typing Hebrew text (left aligned, punctuation on the wrong side), and this is how the Gmail app does it (correctly).

BTW, I've been using Fastmail since 2002 and over the years convinced many friends and family member to become paying Fastmail customers. Most of them later switched to Gmail. One of the main reasons they mentioned was the lack of proper support for Hebrew in the Android app.
