I'm not sure two function are needed here. According to glibc, each language
has one particular alphabetical sorting. Whether it is case sensitive or not
is defined by the language, it's not a matter of personal taste. There are
far more similar options which could be user-definable, e.g. the sort order
of special symbols (including whether they are ignored or not). Libc
provides one solution for each language. However, everyone's free to create
his/her own locale.

On the other hand, what I really miss is a strverscoll() function.
