You err. It is directly related. Current glibc's transliteration is
unacceptable as it is ugly. (BTW, it's also one character longer, which
will break some carefully laid out screens.) I proposed a method to
circumvent glibc's transliteration by not letting any transliteration
happen. How is that “not related”?
