So basically I think that reviewing your patches is only mildy useful
busy work. What's *really* cool is getting your scripts to a point where
they can be used like the Unicode scripts are used, a single directory
and a Makefile that can be run to update the files in question. I think
we're going to have to checkin the CLDR db data to ensure we can reproduce
the results?
