------------------------------------------------------------

This seems like an awful lot of code for something that's 1 or 2 lines of code if java.text.Normalizer
is available from JDK6.

      was (Author: jwcarman):
    Is this code going to change when Oracle decides to change the name of the class to come.oracle.*?
 They've already messed up quite a few folks by changing the JVM name on their latest release
from what I understand.  Also, is it smart to depend on non-core classes here?  What about
other JVMs?  Will this code not work on other JVMs?

> I would like to add a method that replace accented caracter by unaccented one.  For example,
with the input String "L'été où j'ai dû aller à l'île d'Anticosti commenca tôt", the
method would return "L'ete ou j'ai du aller à l'ile d'Anticosti commenca tot".
> I suggest to call that method unaccent and to add it in StringUtils.
> If we cannot covert all case, the first version could only covert iso-8859-1.
> If you are willing to go forward with that idea, I am willing to contribute a patch.
