It used to exist. We have not received any bug report for several years. We
consider it obsolete, XeTeX offers much better solution but there ae still
many documents using the package, so it is necessary to keep it working. A
few years ago prasanna Mishra even wrote an article about it in Hindi.

In these two cases err_ill apparently expect an empty string so your
solution is perfect. The program is not Unicode aware although it can use
Unicode input outside the {\dn } mode. I have tested it using a document
written in Czech and Hindi. Outside {\dn } it just copies the bytes.
