I think so too, initially. I even have correct
ascii,Rascii,Ftable,RFtable,gweights tables in my last committed variant
(but not for various -R). Nope. -n broke them all because it hardcoded to
ASCII but sorted in the modified (collated) order.. Back permutation table
not helps because of different forms of main (collated) order
corresponding to -r -f flags. Via some hacking I even made variant without
-R works for -n too, but it not means it will not be broken for any future
locale we can have.
