OK. After a short discussion with John Cowan, we agreed to make our API's
basically the same. I extended mine a bit to include some macros John
suggested and fixed some problems John pointed out.

To summarize, my UCData package provides an API for ctype-like operations
(i.e. isalpha(), etc.), case mappings, and character decompositions. It keeps
the data in external tables so they can be updated at runtime, and uses 32-bit
characters so surrogates can be handled. Endian and 4-byte boundary issues
are handled automagically. Should work with C++ and C equally well.

Once again, the code is under an X11-style copyright which means there are
almost no restrictions on its use.

The code is available at:

  [For LF lovers]

Saravasti, you are once again welcome to make a copy available on the Unicode
