    May I note that LaTeX 2e has a capital letter geman sharp s since 1992 in
    its standard T1 encoding. It is implemented as a "SS" glyph in the
    standard fonts.

    It is needed for several purposes:
    * To keep hyphenation of all capital words correct (sharp s cannot be
      hyphenated, SS can) (TeX's hyphenation is pattern based)
    * To keep \uppercase and \lowercase clean.
