Add a ./configure option --with-ascii-only or such that would switch the library to an ASCII only mode. In this mode, only 7-bit ASCII would be accepted and all UTF-8 related code would be replaced with (probably smaller and more efficient) code that only handles ASCII.

One possible use case would be low-specification systems with very limited CPU or RAM.
