    "Should ideally" are the operative words; in most cases, we're lucky
    if we get default collating behavior rather than UTF-16 or UTF-8/UTF-32
    binary sorting. That's why it's important what the content of the
    default collation is, and that it get things right for at least a
    large subset of users.

    Overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out.
