I'm not really sure what assumptions I can make to avoid an o(n.m), 
since both of the strings can be presented with characters in any 
(pre)composed form... I don't know if the trouble trying to find a way 
to upper-bound the search with a length (3x? 5x?) would be worth 
considering that it seems to be the normal case that we don't get too 
long strings to compare, and relatively little use of the function 
itself. Would brute-force o(n.m) be /too/ bad?
