in reply to RFC: How to unaccent text?

Two comments about Text::StripAccents:

  • at the time that I uploaded it to CPAN there was nothing else that did the job (well, it was about the same time as another module, as I discovered later), it was something I needed to do fairly frequently, and I had the simple code lying around.
  • I've learned quite a bit since then, both about coding and the standards that are expected of CPAN modules.
Since it appears to have been in some way at least slightly useful - if only because it doesn't require a compiler, I'll revisit it and make it more efficient and better documented.
