[tpm] ucfirst() and unicode

From reading perldoc perlunicode, I was able to figure out why
ucfirst() wasn't doing anything; The data I am altering is coming from a
UTF8-encoded database. I also see the example of creating UTF8
compatible ToUpper(), ToLower(), etc.
There isn't an example of a compatible ucfirst() alternative, and as
I read it, I'd need to create a custom function listing the
source->destination unicodes to convert... This seems tedious so, given
that laziness is the source of all code, I am guessing someone has come
up with another way. Failing that, is there such a function already?
My CPAN search for 'ucfirst unicode' failed (though it's always
possible that there is a PEBCAK).
tl;dr - need a ucfirst() variant that works with Unicode strings.
