What I meant is to have something that detects in UnicodeData.txt the
pattern of entries which need to be excluded.  For example, if entries
like this are the only ones:

     4DB5;<CJK Ideograph Extension A, Last>;Lo;0;L;;;;;N;;;;;

then detecting bracketed text where a character name should be would
suffice.  We could then run such a script as part of what
admin/Makefile does for the unidata.txt file it creates, and display a
proper message.
