[R6RS] Procedures that depend on Unicode character classification

I'd like to suggest that the procedures that depend on the Unicode
character classification, i.e. the ...-ci... procedures, the
{char,string}...case procedures, and `char-general-property' procedure
be moved to a separate library.

They're by far not as frequently used as most of the others, and
leaving them out of a program might save signficant space, as the
tables they need to operate tend to weigh in roughly at the order of
100kbytes (depending on the compact representation chosen).
