[8] Review request for JEP 127: Improve Locale Data Packaging and Adopt Unicode CLDR Data

Something seems strange here:
It's like someone was avoiding overall quotes, but using them to add spaces somehow...
I sure would like to get rid of this shell logic, seems like there are lots repeated logic that
this script does over and over or could be done with makefile pattern subst's instead of exec's.

Overall, just looking at the makefiles, the build-infra team may need some time to fully absorb this into the
new makefiles, some of it will be trivial, not sure all of it will be.

Not sure how to proceed here, the build-infra team does need an action item to deal with this, maybe
before it gets integrated because I suspect the new makefiles will break with all the filename or
directory changes. But I hate to hold up your integration plans.

I'd like to get some advice from Erik on this before saying anything further.
