It seems to me that ascii transliteration is used, and not proper 
translation to unicode and then Unicode sorting of the index terms
or of the index letters.  Translation to Unicode instead of 
transliteration should be easy to do though.  As for sorting, there is
an additional issue, as sorting is locale dependent, I don't really know
how that is taken into account in perl.

I should certainly handle this after the release.
