Reference unittests in the readme as examples
Currently this package has no documentation besides what can be seen in the readme. While much information can be obtained from the official ICU4C documentation this is not very accessible to starters and the mapping to python is not always self-evident. It would therefore be great if this package had some examples etc.
I already took a look into the unittest. My feeling is that some of the tests already contain 90% of what most people use this package for. Therefore it would be a good idea to link to the tests directory in the readme and tell people to look there for some intermediate examples.
Additionally one could add docstrings to the unittests and extend the current set of tests - which would help both the maintainers and users.
