Luckily Unicode defines such classes already.  There's a very high
level overview in this Wikipedia article:

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mapping_of_Unicode_characters

We'd probably want to concentrate on a subset of the mathematical
operators first:

There's even support for this in OCaml already:
