It's not that simple though. I do have a working version. It takes hours to generate the tables once you introduce unicode ranges.

And refactoring it isn't really the solution, since it's an algorithm change that is in order in order to fix that, which means the code has to work different, not simply be organized different, if that makes sense.

The Right(TM) way in this case refers to the correct implementation of the algorithm. There is one, and its derivatives. I just don't know how to find it.
