/**
*
* <code>UnicodeFilter</code> defines a protocol for selecting a
* subset of the full range (U+0000 to U+10FFFF) of Unicode characters.
* Currently, filters are used in conjunction with classes like {@link
* Transliterator} to only process selected characters through a
* transformation.
*
* <p>Note: UnicodeFilter currently stubs out two pure virtual methods
* of its base class, UnicodeMatcher. These methods are toPattern()
* and matchesIndexValue(). This is done so that filter classes that
* are not actually used as matchers -- specifically, those in the
* UnicodeFilterLogic component, and those in tests -- can continue to
* work without defining these methods. As long as a filter is not
* used in an RBT during real transliteration, these methods will not
* be called. However, this breaks the UnicodeMatcher base class
* protocol, and it is not a correct solution.
*
* <p>In the future we may revisit the UnicodeMatcher / UnicodeFilter
* hierarchy and either redesign it, or simply remove the stubs in
* UnicodeFilter and force subclasses to implement the full
* UnicodeMatcher protocol.
