More to the point, there are no such characters in 7-bit ASCII.

I think Alvaro might be suggesting that to_ascii() should expand these
to the two-character sequences "OE" and "oe", but ISTM that opens a can
of worms better left sealed.  There are a *lot* of characters that have
translations of differing levels of plausibility into ASCII.  I'm okay
with dropping accent marks but I'm not sure about doing more than that.
