Unicode Script_Extensions property now in blead
Message ID:
This is an improved Script property, abbreviated "scx"; details in the 
documentation changes.

I didn't add this to 5.14 because I misread the documentation as saying 
it was provisional.  What it actually says is that the data within it is 
provisional, and subject to change, as they go through the Unicode db 
and sort things out.

It would be nice to have something like "use re 'scx'" that would say, 
"I want this substituted for the old sc property everywhere in this 
scope."  But the easiest way of doing this would require changes that 
need to be deferred until the impending battle about 5.16 is settled. Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
