Presumably any such extensions would need to include concepts of sort
order if they are going to handle ranges. In other words the whole
Unicode character properties database is not a sufficient resource;
some sort standard (preferably the nascent ISO 14651) tables are also
needed. Doesn't make for a small grep (or whatever).
