The text-icu library is the more practical cousin to the text library,
implementing a myriad of Unicode-related functionality that is not yet
otherwise available in Haskell. It is implemented as bindings to the widely
used ICU library.



   - Locale sensitive case mapping.
   - Text normalization. (What is normalization?
   - [NEW] Locale sensitive string collation.
   - Conversion to and from a huge number of native encodings.
   - [NEW] Efficient comparison of ByteString and Text.

The library is thoroughly documented, and most interfaces are pure and easy
to use.

Look for further releases over the coming weeks as I complete the ICU
