That's a nice change. IIRC it was not always so (that's why I piggybacked on
perl originally)

Yes. That would help dejavu, but also all the packages that ship unicode
definitions, and could be cleaned up to use a central package (that could be
synced with unicode releases instead of each package shipping obsolete

If you feel like doing some resource packaging
http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/cmap/CMap+Resources is also duplicated

Otherwise I'll just package unicode data next time dejavu does a release and I
need to rebuild the package
