Tomorrow I intend to try pulling in threads, threads::shared,
Unicode::Normalize (now known as Text::Unicode::Normalize),
Unicode::Collate (now known as Sort::UCA), and the little utility
module needed for normalization, Lingua::KO::Hangul::Util.

Then (Saturday) I'll run away for two weeks and leave Nick I-S to deal
with the mess while I'm away :-) When I come back (at the beginning of
September), the ramping up to 5.8.0 release candidates will begin.

The most severe problem (I can think of at the moment) before we can
go RC1 is that PerlIO is not yet thread-safe and that it leaks memory,
but NI-S and Arthur are working on it.

Changes since the last:
