If you are interested in searching and matching, you might be better
served by a collation-based search rather than normalizing, case
folding, and other hand-picked processing.
Unicode defines a default collation algorithm and describes searching
and matching based on it: http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr10/
ICU implements this and provides language-specific tailorings as well
as many knobs and levers for customization:
