Drop backwards-secondary sorting from French collation

Description

Deleted Component: other

Currently we have backwards secondary sorting on for French (and only for French).

However, there is a significant cost to this setting in terms of performance, and no real advantage to users in terms of function.

  • There is little reason to believe that the average, even well-educated, francophone is aware or cares about these rules.

  • They affect very, very few cases (cote, peche, etc).

  • From all evidence, the original research behind the rules was based on a selection of dictionaries where a different selection would have given a different answer.

The plan is to issue a PRI for this change.
