    IMHO the CASS radical set would be the one to use for this. It has the
    support of a major national body and is used in several dictionaries,
    including Xiandai Hanyu Cidian and John DeFrancis' ABC Dictionary.

    I expect too that generating a CASS radical index could be done
    automatically using the kRSKangXi field in Unihan and the mapping
    table between CASS and KangXi radical numbers in DeFrancis - kRSCASS
    would make sense.

    Are all of the CASS radicals themselves encoded in Unicode?
