Slugify removes dotless "i"

As a Turkish Django user, I need to use slugify with strings containing Turkish dotless i. As most Turkish developers, I also expect it to convert that character to ascii "i", however, It just disappears in resulting string. As for now, I am using a workaround I have found in here:

Here is the workaround I currently use:

def slugify_unicode(value):
    value = value.replace(u'\u0131', 'i')
    value = normalize('NFKD', value).encode('ascii', 'ignore')
    value = unicode(sub('[^\w\s-]', '', value).strip().lower())
    return sub('[-\s]+', '-', value)

This seems more of a specific case of #8391, it would be worth adding your notes to that ticket. There are several approaches on that ticket that try to solve this problem more generally
