I haven't looked at it in detail, but PHP 5.4 seems to include a transliteration class. I am wondering if this could be leveraged in this module if the user is using php 5.4. IE -

if (version_compare(PHP_VERSION, '5.4.0') === 1) {
  do transliteration stuff here
}

Just bringing this up in the event it is interesting for future development.

Yep, we will do this, but only after transliteration gets into D8 core. After that it can be backported to a new 7.x-4.x branch.

Please update project page with link to #567832-29: Transliteration in core
