This is more than the same output on screen. '' can be written
in NFC and in NFD, but this is the *same* character. The end user
shouldn't be exposed to problems because some tools decide to use
NFC and other tools decide to use NFD (e.g. I've never has any
problem with filenames under Mac OS X thanks to its normalisation,
but under Linux, I got two files with the same name).
