On this very mailing list we already had some exchange of thoughts about the
unicode grapheme cluster.
One question which was stuck into my head after this exchange was: how many of
unicode "scripts" can be rendered, in a reasonably readable way, in a terminal
That said, it is a brave first step towards "suckless" "i18n" unicode software.
I got nausea looking at libunistring and the horrible gnulib SDK, not to
mention the c++ infection of the "official" libicu (don't let me start on
harfb...): they all deserve a rube goldberg award.
