translitertion of filenames from Herbrew letters to Latin letters

Project Description
taatik - translitertion of filenames from Herbrew letters to Latin letters.

Latinize Hebrew filenames, for use in unicode-incompatible devices
such as old music players or car cd players. Supports two transliterations

* EKTB as suggested by [Amnon Katz in 1987][AK].
Characters are identified by the early Hebrew letters from which they developed.

for example : הרחפת שלי מלאה בצלופחים -> ERHPT SLI MLAE BZLFPHIM

based on similar sounding letters, except ט->U ש->W which are based on figure.

Note that both schemes do not treat the five final letters differently.
