I don't care deeply, but why?  I'm interested whether you see 'lang' and
'uni' as components that would have a life independently of one another.
 Remember that I'm also proposing a set of kernel classes that are
VM-specific.  We don't want to go too fine-grained.

There is a wad of logic to get right for the bidi, word/line/sentence
boundary detection, etc.  I can imagine a world with updates required
here that are independent of other components.
