Hi Simon,

just put my stuff into 4 different branches within your Gitlab repo.

Please review/merge in this order:

# branch 'fixes' 
- fix two crashes in lookup and register functions
- avoid tainting insertname/lookupname on error
- use binary search instead of linear search in idna table

# branch 'unicode6.3.0' (based on 'fixes')
Basically does what it's name says, moves on to Unicode 6.3.0 from currently 
5.2.0. Also does a few cleanups in the build area (Makefiles, URLs).

# branch 'tr46' (based on 'unicode 6.3.0')
Does what it says.
Adds more error codes, flags to the API and options to idn2.
Also uses the official test suite / test cases from Unicode.

# branch 'libunicode' (based on 'unicode6.3.0)
This single commit introduces dynamic usage of gnulib, introduces ./bootstrap 
as proper bootstrapping mechanism, removes all the gl and src/gl stuff from 
the repo. It links with libunistring with fallback to gnulib for functions 
that do not exist (e.g. *joining*()).
Currently, the tests fail on Debian unstable since there is an buggy 
libunistring0 0.9.3. Upgrading to libunistring2 (0.9.6) from experimental does 
it for me. I am not sure how the status is with other distributions.

I am sure I missed to remove some autogenerated files from the repo and other 
little things... so please (everybody here) test, review, comment, ...

Regards, Tim
