A library for working with grapheme cluster groups (graphemes), as defined by the Unicode Standard.

A grapheme is single character, as perceived by users. Some graphemes are represented as multiple unicode characters (code points), yet still be connected visually and semantically.

Pythons built in string functions work with unicode code points as the basic unit, so lengths, slicing, matching etc is done on the code points. This module adds helper functions for common string operations with respect to graphemes instead.
