Indeed, PHP supports locale aware sorting. Unfortunately all is only nice 
in PHP 6 (see http://www.php.net/i18n_loc_set_default for a nice example). 
The question is if sort() supports utf8 sorting by the surrent system 
locale properly (it sorts by ASCII code by default). I did not try 
this before.
