Richard Cook is not talking about the retroflex characters, i.e.,
t-retroflex-hook (0288), d-retroflex-hook (0256), z-retroflex-hook (0290), etc.
He is talking about the alveolo-palatal laminals, i.e.,
c-curly-tail (0255), z-curly-tail (0291), etc.
Some of these were included in Unicode, but not all were -- which is
the point of Cook's proposal to add them.
