 It used to work in non–UTF processing at some point in the past (see
 includes/formatting.php?rev=10150#L401 for the old Latin 1 transliteration
 code) but was apparently omitted when the UTF transliteration segment was

 Anyway the main problem is the {{{sanitize_title}}} line
 that makes it effectively impossible to change the transliteration array
 at any point. I can't seem to find the point in comment:11 because the
 post_name field in the DB is always matched and regarding comment:5 I
 think the {{{sanitize_title}}} at that point is maybe overboard? Wouldn't
 just escaping it for SQL be enough? Otherwise, comment:7 sounds fine for
 that matter.
