i think the kind of thing Aharon was thinking of was something like the
character ß (Latin small letter sharp s) in de_DE (as opposed to

No, it was some issue with Turkish, I think lower case "i" is one byte
but the uppercase is a single, multibyte character.  Or vice versa, but
something along those lines.

ssh! you're spoiling your point! ;-)

i don't speak Turkish, but i think there's something like that to do with their dotless i. but as Tim pointed out, it doesn't matter if your character class is a *character* class rather than a byte class.

i think the sharp s problem is worse, but since everyone seems to get it wrong, it's perhaps not that important.
