New submission from Tom Christiansen <tchrist at perl.com>:
Python has no standard support for the Unicode Collation Library as explained in UTS #10. This is request that UCA library be added to the standard Python distribution.
Collation underlies virtually everything we do with text, not just sorting but any sort of comparison. Furthermore, the UCA is tailorable for locales in a portable way that does not require dodgy vendor support. It is a very important step in making Python suitable for full Unicode text processing.
