This is now fixed in Trunk, also updated tests (and code somewhat) for
Unicode v6, and added minimalist docs:

None of which precludes other (better?) versions appearing as libraries in
their own right in the future.... it's just that as these have been stable
since 2004 it seemed sensible to give them a quick make-over rather than
roll out all new code.

HTH, John.
