The UnicodeData.txt file is compiled into Emacs, but the files you
mention cannot be compiled into it, because they vary, and because
different users might want different lists of characters to be
supported.  So we need to design how this will work.

In addition, I think PUA codepoints aren't really treated as
characters in Emacs, so there's a need for some infrastructure
changes.

Patches welcome.
