I'm withdrawing this one. After more work trying many timings on multiple compilers and various sizes and kinds of datasets, it appears that the unicode specialization is still worth it.  

The cost of the lookup indirection appears to be completely insignificant (i.e. doesn't harm the non-unicode case) while the benefits of the unicode specialized lookup does have measurable benefits in the use case of deduping an iterable of strings.
