One of the major "local hacks" can be fixed, fixing many other problems at the
same time, by switching to using the Unicode "Alphabetic" property (from
DerivedCoreProperties.txt) instead of just categories L* for class alpha. Right
now there are many languages whose letters are considered non-alphabetic by
glibc because they're in category Mn or Mc or even Cf. There are "local hacks"
to fix this for maybe one or two languages, but using the right Unicode
property would fix it for all languages.
