Transform Devanagari from/to Grantha

Because the Grantha script has been encoded at a constant offset to Devanagari, it should be straightforward to write a CLDR transform for converting from Devanagari to Grantha and vice versa.

Here’s a Python script for converting from Devanagari to Grantha, kindly contributed by Shriramana Sharma <jamadagni@…>:

ifile = open("udhr/udhr_san.xml")
ofile = open("/tmp/udhr_san_gran.xml", "w")
for iline in ifile:
    oline = ""
    for c in iline:
        o = ord(c)
        if 0x0900 <= o <= 0x097f and o not in (0x0964, 0x0965):
            oline += chr(o + 0x10a00)
            oline += c

In terms of CLDR-internal implementation, we could do this via a small set of (trivial) rewrite rules since the current transform mechanism doesn’t allow arithmetics on codepoints. It might be an option to add Grantha to the existing InterIndic transforms.

For test data, see https://github.com/unicode-org/udhr/pull/13 (respectively, once this pull request has been merged into the master branch, the udhr_san_gran.xml file in the Unicode UDHR repository).

Fine to create a transform based on this, which is what we assume the ticket is for.
