Unicode script

Suppose I have a Unicode character, and I want to determine the script or
scripts it belongs to.

For example:

U+0033 DIGIT THREE "3" belongs to the script "COMMON";
U+0061 LATIN SMALL LETTER A "a" belongs to the script "LATIN";
U+03BE GREEK SMALL LETTER XI "ξ" belongs to the script "GREEK".


Is this information available from Python?
