In thinking about the announcement, 750K lines sounds impressive; on the 
other hand it also sounds like it could be a red flag about too many 
changes; some number of them have to have bugs.  I'm wondering if it 
would be better to split out code changes into a separate number in the 
future.  My guess is that the 750K number includes the many thousands 
that I submitted, which were just the published Unicode database, and 
nothing that we modified.  These were all .txt files.
