    Partially answering my own question,
    ICU says (on this page:
    that IBM 837 is a bit more than 98% similar to IBM 935.

    The ICU .ucm file for 837 doesn't exist (as far as I can tell
    from looking at the file names in the ICU 'mappings' directory.
    So, would it be safe to conclude that the ICU file
    ibm-935_P110-1999.ucm is 98% of what I need?
    Again, I'm looking for a list of all characters in IBM 837.
