In ldap/libraries/liblunicode/ucstr.c we have around 203:
/* normalize ucs of length p - ucs */
uccanondecomp( ucs, p - ucs, &ucsout, &ucsoutlen );
ucsoutlen = uccanoncomp( ucsout, ucsoutlen );
Why convert to decomposed form then back to composed? Wouldn't
it be better to us decomposed form as the "normalised" form?
