Issue #10567 demonstrated the problem of relying on the Unicode
database in Python builtins.  Apparently, Unicode does not guarantee
stability of the character categories.   On the other hand, we are
already tied to UCD for the language definition.  Maybe Python should
document the version of Unicode it is using in any given version and
possibly upgrade to Unicode 6.0 should be postponed until the language
moratorium is lifted.
