create-category-table: Utility to generate reasonably-packed Unicode tables

This program generates bi-level category tables encoding the contents
of multiple variants of the Unicode category database.

Mono embeds a linear table with category codes for the Unicode BMP
(first 65536 codepoints), and lacks information about characters in
the astral planes--leading to requests such as bug 480178.  Extending
the linear table to cover the full codespace is not an ideal solution
as that would expand the embedded "blob" by a factor of 17.

The new tables generated by this program can be used to support the
full 0000-10FFFF range of characters.  Despite covering a much larger
codespace, the "page" sharing mechanism enabled by the additional
level of indirection allows the data size to shrink from 64 to ~30kB
for .NET 2.0-compatible tables, and ~48kB for combined 2.0+4.0 tables.

Cf. in-file comments for usage instructions.
