The only place I know of that follows this kind of approach is SQL Server,
where all char fields are associated with a specific sort order.

The original code in Decimal is pretty crazy -- even without the newly
recognized dangers of the "upper" function.

To the best of my knowledge, Turkish is the only locale in which an
unaccented latin character has an upper-case value that's different from
what its uppercase value would be in en-US.
