Hmm, from the <link>shared requirement for all ICU targets I concluded that it's
the ICU libraries that are always shared. If you are saying that even while they
are shared, it's OK to have static regex link to shared ICU, provided shared
runtime is used, I can tweak the logic to force shared runtime only.
