     No, because we are using strcmp to implement the lexicographic order
     used when sorting strings.  That function uses the integer character
     codes for the comparison.

Is that the behaviour users want?

I imagine that French users would expect an e-acute to appear near the 
unaccented e and Germans would like their sharp-S to appear near the 
normal S.  And presumably the Spanish like their N-with-squiggle to be
near the naked N.
