[Zope] searching with foreign characters in the ZCatalog

As far as I can tell, using any of the default index types that come with Zope 2 (FieldIndex, TextIndex, whatever) if you do a search for "Jurgen" it will not match "Jürgen".  In my opinion, this is correct - "Jurgen" is spelled incorrectly.  However, I am having some clients push hard to have it behave differently.  From what I've looked at, I haven't seen a way to make FieldIndex ignore or somehow manipulate "special" characters, nor have I seen any products that provide a new index type to specifically deal with this.  Does anyone know if there is something out there to help with this?
