I'm actually aware of charlint and I'm happy to replace it with
Unicode::Normalize, that has just entered CPAN and will AFAICS
included in Perl 5.8.0 :-) It's small, fast and simple, compared
to Charlint (especially because it uses optimised Unicode data
coming with Perl and does nothing but normalization as opposed
to charlint)

Thanks anyway :-)
