Attached is a script that seems to do the job (except for the rst formatting, which can be added later.  This was so that you can see by the diff what has changed).

In the process of doing this, I found that Jeff McNeil is far out of order in Misc/ACKS, and possibly also Hugo Lopes Tavares and Xavier de Gaye, depending on what alphabetization rules should be used.

The script contains logic to collect the non-ascii characters that appear in people's names, so that non-ascii characters can be approximated by ascii characters for ordering purposes (which seems to be how it is done now in some cases).

In a subsequent comment, I will attach a diff that results from running the script, so you can see what effect it has on Misc/ACKS.
