libuninameslist with NamesList.txt 7.0_Beta

Joe
If anyone wants to test/try libuninameslist with nameslist.txt 7.0_beta,
it is up on github now.

NOTE: It is not merged into master yet (master = 6.2), but it is available
for download as a branch:
https://github.com/fontforge/libuninameslist/tree/Nameslist_7.0_beta
https://github.com/fontforge/libuninameslist/archive/Nameslist_7.0_beta.zip

autoreconf -i
automake --foreign -Wall
./configure  (with options?)
make
sudo make install

...will install lib in /usr/local/lib and includes in /usr/local/include

This 'branch' is still marked as 0.3 and not yet at 0.4, and Unicode.org
indicates 7.0_beta until April 28th. When it is official, then it will be a
good time to announce an updated libuninameslist 0.4.2014____

You will need to 'make clean' and then recompile FontForge after installing
the libuninameslist library.

On the GUI, you will know it is 7.0_beta when you see added unicode values
plus comments. For example, unicode value 0x3A should have the added
comment:
"also used to denote division or scale; for that mathematical use 2236 is
preferred"

...or on the command line, you can run a small native script like:
fontforge --lang=ff --script test.pe

----test.pe start----
#!/usr/local/bin/fontforge
Print( "starting script" )
temp = UnicodeNamesListVersion()
Print( temp )
Print( "done version" )
----test.pe end----
