Hmm, I thought about upgrading the whole package to Unicode 4.0.
Will talk about it to the author.

Hey, Daniel, there were three votes and a positive review, lets push it
on the mirrors;-)

In my opinion it is overkill for a small package when there are just
some files to compile or no compilation (e.g. perlscript help2man).
I have hacked the script to compile a package just to deliver it to
myself and then I thought, hey, why not include this little package in
the netrelease?  Usually you're right, I should use the
One-Script-Fits-All generic script and the generic readme.
And I decided to upgrade to the OSFA for the next release.
