Are you sure you need to use this library for generating typolinks? If I
have a domain with umlauts in the HTML-page, isn't the browser going to
translate that to punycode if the user clicks on it, just as if the user
entered it into the Address-bar?

I would add a new "eval" possibility to TCA called "domain", so that
also extensions can create "domain" fields that can handle these.
Storing them in punycode in the database and converting them to "umlaut"
variants in the human-readable TCEforms.

If this is the path we choose (would be cool), we would need to convert
the punycode back to renderCharset on output if what I said above is true.
