Alas nedtries is a *bitwise* trie implementation, not a character based
one. A bitwise trie indexing algorithm is superb for associative
containers where the key is a bunch of bits small enough to allow the
CPU's bit scan reverse opcode to work on them (i.e. as an unordered_map
or map replacement), but I'm not sure that that is directly useful for
UTF-8 parsing.
