Possibly.  This implementation is a (more or less) direct port of
GLib's, which itself comes from libunicode, and I must admit I haven't
had time to research the history of that solution, nor to explore
alternative ones.

This is definitely worth trying and measuring, though.  I will look
into it before submitting an updated series.

Okay; I will focus on getting numbers for the simple lookup technique
