Possibly we could use the glib code, which I used in LibIDN, as a
basis for this.  Or do you have another NFKC implementation?

Btw, ultimately, I'd like to see many of the neat stuff in glib be
modularised into gnulib.  I have been hesitating about depending on
glib, because it is ever growing and some parts have portability
issues (e.g., related to threads), but most parts of it is quite
general and well written.
