Please forgive my ignorance.

Is m17n a type of unicode? http://unicode.org makes no mention of it
that I can see. And http://m17n.org make no mention of unicode. Why is
this? In general terms, I think m17n is a type of unicode. Is there a
political disagreement between them or a technical one?

I ask this because I understand that future versions of Ruby will use
m17n to address issues that others use unicode to address. Could someone
who understands this take the time to explain the differences?

Thank you,
Brad
