In addition there is 0x1b which is like 0x1e, except that it does not
act as a space.  Only known example is is for "L'" being used as a

   Rue de L'Abbe Vincent

There is also 0x1c which is the non-spacing equivalent of 0x1f, I
don't know of any examples of that being used in street names.

Since 0x1e and 0x1f are effectively spaces, I've created a patch to
make them sort along with and just after space.
