+ Haskell bindings to the International Components for Unicode (ICU)
+ libraries. These libraries provide robust and full-featured Unicode
+ services on a wide variety of platforms.
+ * Both pure and impure bindings, to allow for fine control over efficiency
+ * Breaking of strings on character, word, sentence, and line boundaries.
+ * Access to the Unicode Character Database (UCD) of character metadata.
+ * String collation functions, for locales where the conventions for
+ lexicographic ordering differ from the simple numeric ordering of
+ * Character set conversion functions, allowing conversion between
+ Unicode and over 220 character encodings.
+ * Unicode normalization. (When implementations keep strings in a
+ normalized form, they can be assured that equivalent strings have a
+ unique binary representation.)
+ * Regular expression search and replace.
