    Actually I was going to go the other way: the text should first be
    normalized to *decomposed* form (NFD). For maximum obfuscation, you
    want as many Basic Latin letters as possible in the source text.
    Precomposed letters-with-diacritic don't get transformed at all, which
    defeats the purpose.
