I'd prefer not to add Python as prerequisite for building Emacs.  We
already use Awk, so using that'd be fine.

Alternatively, we could do it in Emacs Lisp, similar to
unidata-gen.el, but that requires some care because we cannot run Lisp
programs until we have some version of Emacs.

Maybe in a Cairo build.  Or maybe I'm missing something.
