From that point in your email onward, I stopped understanding. One
thing seemed clear is that it didn't reek of fell-swoop. I didn't see
anything cookbook-ish that I could build upon. Thank you anyhow.
My goal is similar to that of a search engine. Take a word or a phrase
and check it against a longer hunk of text. Yes there is a match or no
there isn't. The i modifier to m// takes care of case. And it seems
Convert::Translit takes care of accents.
