    The intent is that the zipped folder for each version provides the
    same information as the unzipped folder.

    However, the Unihan database is a large chunk of the UCD that's not
    needed by everyone. Therefore, it will be zipped separately.

    That struck us as the correct balance between convenience of
    getting the files and not forcing people to download
    more than they actually want to use.
