A code analysis tool recently run on the Firebird code base turned up
lots of bugs -- in ICU. Doesn't mean a wrapper wouldn't have value, but
it also might not be practical. I don't know.

FWIW, I have the interest and the ability to write Boost.Unicode. What I
lack is time. Anybody with a vested interest in C++ and Unicode should
consider hiring Boost Consulting. *nudge, nudge* :-)
