What we have seen is that the behavior that comes from that Unicode
data does not please the users very much.  Users seem to have many
different ideas of what folding is useful, and disagree with each
other greatly.

We should not cling to the set of folding specs that happen to come
from that Unicode data.  Let's forget that Unicode data.
