Description hdu@apache.org 2009-09-14 13:56:28 UTC
Character properties are needed for shaping. Getting them all from uchar.h can make maintenance easier 
especially when a newer unicode standard changes the character properties (e.g. unicode 4.0.0->4.0.1 
changed the bidi properties of plus and minus).
Comment 1 hdu@apache.org 2009-09-14 14:03:36 UTC
The question of cost vs. benefit is tricky. Cost would be the risk of regressions, development, testing, 
more difficult debugging, more testing needed when using newer icu-versions.
