    Anyone who really, badly wants to parse the grocery lists of Ewell using
    software can check the character properties for Ewellic, in standard
    Unicode format, at:

    While these characters ain't never gonna be in Unicode, I would think
    all proposals for encoding should have this level of detail regarding
    the properties of the proposed characters.

    Note especially the "number" fields for the hex digits: they are
    numeric, they are even digits, but they're not *decimal* digits.
