Remove accented characters from in_string.
Unicode accented chars can be represented by two characters that combine
to a single printable char, or by a single character value.
Normalize to NFD converts all accented characters to the base character and
the computational accent char.
The accent characters are examples of combining chars.
r = [c for c in normalize("NFD", in_string) if not combining(c)]
