    I used these as an example because in Unicode canonically decomposes
    to and breve, just like canonically decomposes to plus diaeresis
    (or umlaut? not sure what German bibliographers would make of this one),
    and a diacritic folding would automatically fold with as well as
    with . I presume the former folding would be unacceptable to Russians,
    at least in some contexts.
