It could be submitted soon if I gave it a bit of love. If my talk about
it gets accepted for boostcon 2011, I will definitely have it in the
review queue several months before it starts.

- I need to finish support for word, sentence and line boundaries
- The ABI needs to be more clearly defined to guarantee backward and
- The convert and segment subsystem must be clearly separated into its
own library and namespace
- The system must be made SIMD-ready
- Simple case conversion should be added
- General case folding (and maybe collation) should be added
Nothing among these is particularly difficult.
