      Description

      The specification of java.lang.Character.isIdentifierIgnorable disagrees
      with the JLS. This is from isIdentifierIgnorable:

      "Determines if the specified character should be regarded as an ignorable
      character in a Java identifier ... "

      This is from JLS:

      "Two identifiers are the same only if they are identical, that is, have
      the same Unicode character for each letter or digit."
