    Only very few foldings make sense to apply on a permanent basis. Think of
    casefolding for example. Such a folding is mostly useful for searches,
    where it is applied *transiently*.

    Ideally, all searches are tailored in a language specific way, so that you
    can strike the right balance between convenience and false positives.
