Please note that according to `MySQL Unicode Character Sets`_, comparisons for
the ``utf8_general_ci`` collation are faster, but slightly less correct, than
comparisons for ``utf8_unicode_ci``. If this is acceptable for your application,
you should use ``utf8_general_ci`` because it is faster. If this is not acceptable
(for example, if you require German dictionary order), use ``utf8_unicode_ci``
because it is more accurate.
