Implement collation

Martin von Löwis

Collation is defined in UTS#35, Part 5. This in turn requires UTS# 10 (Unicode Collation Algorithm) to be implemented first.

I propose to start with a pure-Python implementation of UCA. When this gets added to Python itself, it's probably better to implement collation in C, as part of the Unicode type. Since CLDR collation relies on UCA, it would be good to understand how precisely they interact before attempting a C implementation.
