AFAIK there is no unicode_string there so far. So the string_algo lib works
with the stuff, that is available. i.e. std containers (with fixed-width characters)
and locales.

I can imagine a support for unicode string. If it would be well designed, many
string algorithms can work almost out-of-box.
