Reading through the manual section on case tables, it seems that this
could be supported via the extra "canonicalize" slot:

    CANONICALIZE
      The canonicalize table maps all of a set of case-related
      characters into a particular member of that set.

If this isn't already used for Unicode case folding, what _is_ it used
for?
