because they haven't been implemented :-) I saw your bug in bugzilla
about it, so we'll be working on it soon.

hmm, the GNOME 1.x version (0.2.9x) is not utf8-safe. GNOME 2 version is
(or at least should :-). So, it would be great if you could do the
testing with that utf8 database using the GNOME 2 version.

yes, we'll extend the provider interface with all these things. Could
you add bugs to bugzilla about it, please?

And, what are the strict/not-strict functions?
