(well, SQLite FTS5, which doesn't have the same testing guarantees)

if that code is right then FTS5's Unicode 6.1 tokenizer isn't working right
wait holy shit, I think this might be a bug in the FTS5 tokenizer
I'm still not entirely sure how this is happening, but the string

Trying out tools designed to find source-code similarities (i.e. for punishing students) and applying them to find similar code in a code base so that I may reduce duplication
