Hmmm, that is not complete: I understand that every ü, Ü, u, U comes to 
single group, but is u<ü<U<Ü? Let say yes. Then try
\input sort-ini.tex

\enableregime[windows]          % Eingabe-Codierung
\mainlanguage[de]               % Sprachmodus	




\setupsorting[person][criterium = all]
%\def\person#1{#1\expanded{\index{#1}}, }
%\def\person#1{#1\index{#1}, }

\person{Unsinn, Klaus}
\person{Militzer, Bernd}
\person{Horten, Hans}
%\person{Überall, Heinrich}
\person{\Udiaeresis berall, Heinrich}



- newtexexec is needed!
- works for both index/sorting
- works only for \Udiaeresis not for direct Ü! Strange! Why?
