I think part of the problem is that there aren't enough people who truly
understand localization.  I think I understand most of it, but I'm
pretty sure I *don't* understand how collation works, or is supposed to
work.  Amongst other things, I don't understand how (or whether) it
handles cases like "aa" and "å", which are considered the same letter in

Perhaps you could create a Localization page on which
addresses these issues, or at least points to relevant resources?
