After a bit of research, it looks like Python can't correctly compare
unicode strings because it does order-based comparison instead of using
a UCA (Unicode Collation Algorithm,

There doesn't seem to be an easy-to-use, packaged Python UCA, and Django
doesn't seem to be of any help here either.

I think it's good enough for now. Especially since the ordering is
actually language-dependant, we won't be able to provide a correctly
sorted list anyways.
