What do you mean by basically Unicode?

I mean that it is the right default behavior to follow Unicode TR 29.

The problems in GTK+:
- the behavior is not consistent between GtkEntry and GtkTextView (and
  possibly GtkLabel too for word selection).
- the current behaviors don't work well, since it uses only
  natural-language word boundaries.

So I want to fix both points.

Fixing internal inconsistencies is a good idea, of course. Patches for
that would be most welcome.

For tayloring the text segmentation behavior for special situations,
such as code instead of natural language, a vfunc is the right

Does that make clear what I would like to see ?
