I have just taken the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_9 table and
implemented it on Marko's suggestion. Personally I have no opinion on
what letters should be included and under what name. These funny Us just
happened to be in the ISO9 table.

There is no codepoint and no name for <U0423><U0301> and <U0443><U0301>
in Unicode. That’s why its coming through that way from my worksheet as
it does a reverse lookup on the names based on the Unicode codepoints.

Manually we can change it to whatever you’d suggest in the
translit_cyrillic. I just don’t know the right name.

On my side I think I have all outstanding tasks complete for the patch
https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=11144. So please let
me know explicitly if you'd like anything changed there.

I was planning to rewrite just the commit message according to your
earlier feedback and resubmit sometime soon.

Bests,
Diego
