I'm playign with the new texutil, and what i need is sort rules. 

for instance, for slovenian we need:  


\exportsortexpansion {ccaron}  {cz}
\exportsortexpansion {cacute}  {czz}
\exportsortexpansion {dstroke} {dz}
\exportsortexpansion {scaron}  {sz}
\exportsortexpansion {zacron}  {zz}

\exportsortdivision  {cz}  {ccaron}
\exportsortdivision  {czz} {cacute}
\exportsortdivision  {dz}  {dstroke}
\exportsortdivision  {sz}  {scaron}
\exportsortdivision  {zz}  {zacron}


can you (and others) more language specific sort rules? 

(divisions do the reverse, they determine what ends up under a different  key)
