unicore/README.perl:perl with older Unicode versions

I tried to make the necessary changes for Perl v5.22 to work with old
Unicode versions, but ran out of time before the code freeze, with 5.1
being the earliest version.  The sticking point there is that the
Capital Sharp S, U+1E9E, was defined in that release.  Because of its
anomalous behavior with the infamous lower case sharp s, U+00DF, there
is a bunch of hard-coded references to it in the C code which need to be
adjusted to handle it's absence.
