Cangjie-Unicode table

Does there exist a table of Cangjie codes for the full Unicode 2.0 (or
better still, 3.0) Han character set? I would be grateful if anyone could
point me to any fairly comprehensive table(s) they know of.

Cangjie, a.k.a. Dragon code, Ts'ang-chieh (Wade-Giles), and, in various
nonstandard transcriptions, Changjie, Changjei, etc., is a character
shape-based input method for CJK Han characters. There are various
"dialects" of Cangjie in use--i.e., there can be more than one valid code
for the same character--and I don't care which one a table makes use

I currently have about 21,000 various Cangjie codes for about 18,500 Unicode
2.0 and 3.0 Han characters, plus some non-yet-Unicode characters. That
leaves about 3000 Unicode 2.0 characters without Cangjie codes, not to
mention all the new Han characters added in 3.0. These exotic characters are
ones most in need of a shape-based input method, since their pronunciation
is usually just guesswork.
