We don't really have to write it from scratch, porting an existing code
would suffice, but a difference between unicode char width (16 vs. 32 bit)
makes it impossible to use any system unicode APIs. Another reason to have
an internal implementation is to not depend on possible differences between
implementations, differences in collation tables is an obvious example here.
