This affects all manner of algorithms. I'm not even sure what I want for some
of them. I'm pretty sure I don't want everything to work with code units rather
than characters...

I still have to add an xref for code unit; I also have to figure out what to do
for a lot of these cases. I guess I need to define that isolated surrogates in
a Unicode string are considered as being characters too, or something (with
their code point being the value of the surrogate).
