I couldn't resist taking a quick look into the sources.
- I have found my_hash_sort_utf8 in strings/ctype-utf8.c and am convinced that the change is incredibly easy there.
- I have found my_strnxfrm_unicode in the same file and will need more time to make my opinion of how difficult it will be (I don't know what a weight is, so I currently try to understand what the function does at all).
- My main problem: I did not find my_strnncollsp_utf8_general_ci anywhere (nor in the same neither in any other file). Where is it?
Furthermore, studying the code has led to some questions; for example, there already seems to be a #define which controls the padding-when-comparing mode, but only for the _cs collations?
Should we continue our conversation on the developer mailing list?
