The unicode character tables occupy a significant size, in terms of
read-only memory. If other apps on the OS are using libunistring, this
cost is divided among all apps; but if you have an app that uses GLib,
for example, you're duplicating the tables that they have.

(It still seems to me that unistring is the right solution for Guile and
GNU, though.)
