A problem arises in executing this change, perhaps a minor one.  We currently
point to 'The Unicode Character Database' with a URI of
http://www.unicode.org/Public/5.1.0/ucd/UCD.html.  This page, in turn, follows
the familiar convention of providing a link to the previous version, and to the
latest version, of the document.  Following the link to the latest version, one
is told that "The UCD Documentation File You Requested Has Been Replaced", as
of version 5.2.0.

The current version of Unicode now (as of October 2010) appears to be Unicode
6.0.0.

We need to repeat the work MK did on 5.2.0, checking character categories and
block names.  

And we need to figure out which document(s) to link to.  Perhaps the best way
to point to the Unicode Database itself is via
http://www.unicode.org/Public/6.0.0/, which has the advantage that it has both
the traditional semicolon-separated value files and an XML version of the
database files in its subdirectories.  But for documentation, it would probably
be better to point people to http://www.unicode.org/ucd/, which in turn links
to http://www.unicode.org/versions/latest/ for the Unicode spec itself.
