    Something else.

    NuShu (or Nüshu) is periodically "discovered" and raised for
    discussion on this list.

    There is a block set aside in the Roadmap for Plane 1 for it:

    See 1B000..1B5FF.

    But to date there is no formal proposal for encoding, nor any
    indication that anyone is seriously working on one.

    By the way, if there is *any* significant information about
    an as-yet-unencoded modern or historic script, it is fairly
    likely that the Roadmap already contains some indication of
    that fact and a tentative estimate of script size and
    allocational position:

    So those charts are always a good place to start checking
    when wanting to know what the status of some obscure
    script might be in Unicode.
