What code you mean? If you mean the patch he post, the patch is obviously 
wrong and not pass even simplest tests. It reminds my very early attempts.

Yes, both variants (i.e. NetBSD sort too, if it will be fixed) limited to
8bit, as 99% of other base-localized soft. Multibyte l10n is completely
different thing. What his work you mean? I answer him, read this
