Make accented letter equivalent to their non-accented alternatives in the search

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
As I write in french, there are often accents in the words used for the title of my objects. However, I’m not always consistent with the accents that I use; they might sometime be on a word, and sometimes not. It’s pretty easy to forget !

But AnyType seem to see accented letters as their own particular thing; hence, searching for reveil will not return the word réveil, and vice-versa.

I imagine that I’m not the only one here in this situation, and that others that have to use accents have the same issue.

Describe the solution you’d like
I think that AnyType’s search should see accented letters as similar to their non-accented version. Hence, a search for reveil should return objects with the word réveil.

This is how it’s done in Joplin currently, and it’s much more useful than it is problematic for me. It could be interesting to have the opinion and experiences of over users about that, however.
