Billy gave extensive, highly transforming, "only an implementer would
see this stuff" feedback which widely transforms the paper. Basically it
has to be rewritten, and I'm about half done in that rewrite. I've also
merged feedback from Corentin, and I think a better proposed wording has
resulted.

The reference implementation in LLFIO has been upgraded to match the
future wording, and source compatibility breakage has not been terrible.

Please do seek the volunteer however, and I'll get them draft 2 by next
week. The biggest change in R4 relevant to SG16 is configurable
separator interpretation, where we shall need to take a decision about
how it needs to interact with Unicode normalisation and separator
collapsing. Earlier editions did not have it at all, LEWG (via a comment
from Billy actually) added it in Prague.

Thanks for your help.

Niall
