/**
 * <code>UnicodeFilterLogic</code> provides logical operators on
 * {@link UnicodeFilter} objects.  This class cannot be instantiated;
 * it consists only of static methods.  The static methods return
 * filter objects that perform logical inversion (<tt>not</tt>),
 * intersection (<tt>and</tt>), or union (<tt>or</tt>) of the given
 * filter objects.
 *
 * If a UnicodeFilter* f is passed in, where f == NULL, then that
 * is treated as a filter that contains all Unicode characters.
 * Therefore, createNot(NULL) returns a filter that contains no
 * Unicode characters.  Likewise, createAnd(g, NULL) returns g->clone(),
 * and createAnd(NULL, NULL) returns NULL.
