I've released the alpha version of the Unicode string library for  
Erlang (based on ICU) that I mentioned on this list a while ago.

Right now, most basic operations are supported, like comparison (with  
or no regard for case), concatenation, getting substrings, searching  
for substrings, and case conversions.

Strings are represented by binaries containing normalized sequences  
of UTF-16 code units. There are functions to convert between ustrings  
and UTF-8 lists and binaries.

This is alpha code -- there are bugs and limitations. I need your  
patches, comments and suggestions. :)
