I assumed that most moved on to utf so ... when i looked at these 
definitions there were plenty greek, cyrillic, etc that were just there 
because in mkii we had to follow the 'name' route and it's a waste of 
memory and hash entries. For now I kept the latin but it is tempting to 
ditch them too.

We could of course make a module with named ones,
