    Until now, the only way to do proper Unicode sorting in Haskell was to depend on text-icu, which wraps the C library icu4c. However, there are disadvantages to depending on an external C library. In addition, the last release of text-icu was in 2015, and since then there have been changes to icu4c that cause build-failures, as noted in this issue.
