They have no code.  Only data that maps Unicode char names to their
(integer) code and that groups them into a few categories.

Most likely they should be merged with the rest of the unicode data we use
in the emacs-unicode branch.  Also, they should be auto-generated from
emacs/admin/unidata/Unicode.txt rather than stored in the CVS.

About 25 source Elisp files.  Sounds like it deserves its own directory.
