Don't let me stop you, but I predict that developers who take on this
challenge will quickly find themselves stuck between:
ROCK: Many uppercase letters that are "identical" or "similar" across
scripts, such as Latin B and Greek Β and Cyrillic В, turn out to be
dramatically different in lowercase: b, β, в.
HARD PLACE: Users of text editors expect searching and replacing
functions to have an "ignore case" option.
