My thoughts are still focused on ironing out some issues. But this is
a fine time to start suggesting ways to make it customizable.

In the very least we can rename the current table to
character-fold-table-default, and make let the user change
character-fold-table if desired.
We can also offer more alternatives besides the current default, but
it would be better to give users a good way to define classes.

This, along with ironing out the kinks, is my priority for this
feature. However, I'm writting my thesis right now so I won't be able
to do this for another couple of months.
Of course, if anyone would like to contribute documentation that would
be highly appreciated.
