Glyph and (de-)composed are different things

A glyph may be a ligature https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typographic_ligature
2 or more chars, depending on the font you use. Even whole words.

As for (de-)composed: SynEdit has some code to detect them (combining 
codepoints). Not sure if (still) complete (if new ones were added ??).
But if you just want (de-)composed, and not a complete unicode library 
(with all the properties for each codepoint), then feel free to look at 
the code, and use/copy it (that is: check svn blame, if any one else 
committed to that particular code. If it is just I, who committed, then 
feel free to copy, even if license changes.
