Some of maps were "hand tweaked" from the output of the script, for
example See git log for more details. This is due to
part of the source file was not incomplete or inappropriate. Also we
needed to compromise while creating a mapping between some local
encodings (for example SJIS) and Unicode, because in the source
mapping file round trip conversion is not guaranteed.
