These are Open Source libraries donated by IBM, that deal with Unicode and

-- case-sensitiveness was the first,
-- dumbing down the language so that option explicit/strict off work is what
really is ahead of us. Fortunately that is just a lot of 'if's and
additional late-binding code, and most of it lives in
