What I find a lot more objectionable is that what this code pretends to
do is not defined (in particular, the domain over which it applies).
Without such qualification, we cannot say if the code is correct or not,
no matter how fishy it looks. In fact, this example is a perfectly valid
implementation if the system pretends to handle only an appropriate
subset of the Unicode character set.
