That's what I thought.  Therefor any program that implements any of those
algorithms is dependent on the data in UnicodeData.txt.

However, if that data can only be usefully expressed in precisely that way
(that is, reverse-engineering those algorithms would regenerate the file)
then the copyright on the file is probably unenforceable.
