unicodedata name for \u000a

Newbie question:  on unicodedata.name


If I do

import unicodedata
unicodedata.name(u"a")
or
unicodedata.name(u"\u0061")

I get
'LATIN SMALL LETTER A"

as expected; but when I follow that with

unicodedata.name(u"\u000a")

I get

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
ValueError: no such name

There is, of course, a Unicode name for \u000a,
which is 'LINE FEED' or perhaps 'LINE FEED (A)'.

Is there a gap in unicodedata? or in my understanding?

Thanks,

Ken
