    Well, that wins for 8859-1 and 8859-11 and ISCII-88, where Unicode
    copied existing layouts precisely. But it wouldn't help other 8859-x
    much if at all, and it requires binary search rather than direct
    array access, which would be a terrible lossage in CJK, where the
    real costs are.
