That said, I don't think the size is very important. For any non-trivial Python application, the size of unicodedata will be negligible compared to the size of Python objects.
That depends very much on the platform and the application. For our embedded use of Python, static data size (like the text segment of a shared object) is far dearer than the heap space used by Python objects, which is why we've had to excise both the UCD and the CJK codecs in our builds.
