code_point_sequence takes container as the first parameter so the second
line of code will be just:

code_point_sequence cps(std::move(cus));

We can provide deduction guide, for example:

code_point_sequence sps{u"Hello"};

Would deduce to:

code_point_sequence<code_unit_sequence<utf16, std::endian::native,

Remember there are tons of code unit sequence types out there:
std::basic_string, Microsoft's CString, Qt's QString, wxWidgets's
wxString. We want to support all those types if people provide their
encoding form traits.
