While I would expect the answer to my question to be true,
one never knows what lurks in the heart of data files.
Unihan.txt contains at least two properties for each of the
four dictionaries used in the sorting algorithm. One property
contains only characters that are actually in the dictionary
while the other contains interpolations as well. Is it always
the case that a character is in one of these dictionaries
if and only if the two properties have the same value
and always end in 0.
For example, if there is a value of kIRGKungXi of the form
XXXX.YY0 there will always be the same value for the
kKangXi for that character and vice versa.
I'm trying to pare Unihan.txt down to a less unwieldy size
for my own use by eliminating properties that are of no
interest to me and would like to be certain that eliminating
the four properties containing the actual values for those
dictionaries can be done safely because the information
can be reconstituted if necessary from the kIRG*
properties since I'm not certain if those properties
are of interest to me.
