Karl,

Given that Perl pretty much plans to track Unicode, any of their
character class changes could cause Perl programs that depend on them
to break.

I'm interested in your ideas for any of the following:

* How can we better document (if we're not) the forward compatibility
risks inherent in using Unicode character classes?

* How can we let programs introspect the version of Unicode that Perl provides?

* Is it possible to make any of this pluggable, so a program could
specify which version of Unicode classes they want to use?
