RFC: make unicore/Properties into a .pod
Message ID:
Here is a refinement of what I proposed a week ago.

I'll do what Yves, and Merijn said, and list every property, with a mark 
to indicate those whose use is discouraged.

I propose turning this into a pod file, say perluniprops.pod.  Then we 
can replace the long and incomplete lists in perlunicode.pod by a link 
to this machine-generated file, which will cut down on the maintenance.

If that is acceptable, it brings up some more questions.  In what 
directory should mktables create the pod file?  Perhaps it should be in 
the current directory, and symbolically linked to from the pod 
directory.  I see that some pods are symbolically linked on my Linux 
system.  Apparently you guys have some cross-platform way to do this. 
If that is the way to go, how do I find out how to set such a thing up?

And perhaps it shouldn't generate this file each run, but only under an 
option, say -makepod?
