Here's the converter.  It reads the confusables.txt file and generates a
char-table with strings as values.  I'll package the converter and the
resulting uni-confusables.el library and put them on the GNU ELPA.

Could you tell me the best way to write uni-confusables.el?  In what
format should I provide the char-tables in the ELisp code?  The uni-*
files in Emacs use `define-char-code-property' because they deal with a
single property, so should the properties here be
'confusables-single-script and 'confusables-multiple-script?
