[PATCH] Use Unicode 5.1 files consistently
Message ID:
Drop the 5.0 Unicode tables still used in favor of the 5.1 versions

Perl was using a combination of 5.0 and 5.1 Unicode tables; thus some 
things were out-of-sync.  This is a minimal patch to replace all the 
currently used 5.0 tables with their 5.1 counterparts, without 
introducing new bugs.  There are still a number of bugs in mktables that 
I intend to address later, but I thought it might be good to get 
something out might make it into 10.1 to avoid any problems of some of 
the generated filenames changing, as was discussed on this forum recently.

This patch includes the new versions of a couple of Unicode-supplied 
files, and the changes needed to handle them.  I did take the liberty of 
also changing some typos in comments and messages, and to add a 
disclaimer to the beginning of the generated files in sub-directories 
that these files are for internal Perl use only
