The best solution is to stop expecting out-of-the-box
casing implementations to do a hunky-dory, perfect, nobody-
could-complain-about-anything job of casing and folding
for modern *and* ancient Greek, monotonic *and* polytonic,
precomposed *and* decomposed, based on a cobbled together
mixed-up encoding of Greek that was not engineered in the
first place to facilitate casing operations on Greek.
The Greek encoding in Unicode is a mess. Well, not quite
as big a mess as the Hangul encoding in Unicode, but close.
If people are expecting perfection in the handling of
Greek data, then they need to pre-process their Greek
data and then write specialized, perfect algorithms to
produce the results they want.
