Hello, this is the revising patch applies on top of the previous

Differences on map files are enormous but useless for discussion
so they aren't included in this. (but can be generated)

This still doesn't remove three .txt/.xml files since it heavily
bloats the patch. I'm planning that they are removed in the final
shape. All authority files including the removed files are
automatically downloaded by the Makefile in this patch.

Finally the attached patch contains most of (virtually all of)
Daniel's suggestion and some modification by pgperltidy.

So, I think the attached are in rather modern shape.

The attached are applied pgperltidy. Several regions such like
additional character list are marked not to be edited.

One concern is what to leave by 'make distclen' and 'make
maintainer-clean'. The former should remove authority *.TXT files
since it shouldn't be in source archive. On the other hand it is
more convenient that the latter leaves them. This seems somewhat
strange but I can't come up with better behavior for now.
