Since the Unicode character names are probably
not used for performance sensitive tasks, I suggest to
checkin the smallest version possible.

If it is too much work to get Finn's version recoded in C
(presuming it's written in Java), then I'd suggest checking
in your version until someone comes up with a yet smaller
