This is unfortunate, to have a new dependency, and on a library that's
not in released distros, nor even very googlable. (I'm on the fedora 11
prereleases, and it seems there is no unistring package.)

It's also unfortunate that we won't be sharing unicode tables with other
apps that exist.

But, I guess this is the right way forward. ASCII and wchar were even
less "fortunate" ;-)

Yay for unicode in Guile!
