Sorting can be done not only by locale and alphabetically, but also in 
phone book and more sort orders. Just in German you have a couple of 
options to sort umlauts, and such national stuff is covered by unicode 
standard libraries.

I didn't realize that such functions are supplied only for the target 
Unicode representation, thanks for mentioning this topic.
