Our situations sound similar. Our encoding matrix is currently simple,
but we're moving to Unicode/UTF-8 since it won't be simple for long.
Maybe you're right... maybe I shouldn't worry about a 30% hit on queries.

Can you recommend a source?
Did you write your own map-lookup function, or did you acquire one?
I found one on the net once, but it seemed unnecessarily complex,
so I assume we'll write our own. Is it as simple as it seems or
am I in for suprises?
