    this one caught my eye...

    I'm surprised that my CC-SA licence causes a problem. I have
    no objection to material from Kanjidic2 ending up in the Unihan
    file, and I can give The Unicode Consortium a specific release
    if that would help (an ack. in the comments up the front of the
    text version would be nice, but I wouldn't make a big issue
    of it.)
