  • You were totally missing out on the unicode whitespace drama lately, with the 2 unicode whitespace chars which needed to be added to moar and parrot, where in the end parrot had to override the icu calls, and add a gperf generated perfect hash for more unsupported name aliases. moar and perl5 ditched icu and did it by themselves. perl5 being still the worst of all implementations to handle unicode character attributes efficiently. https://github.com/parrot/parrot/issues/1075 plus several other GH issues. #1015 and #1029 for the U+180e Mongolian Vowel Separator (MVS)
