Boost.Locale uses ICU's implementation of the standard
Unicode Segmentation Algorithm.
The rationale behind it is: it is well known, debugged
and high quality implementation. Currently ICU is the
best known cross platform generic libraries that implement
the Unicode algorithms and localization facilities.

If it is not good enough and does not do the required thing it is
much easier to talk to ICU people. There are already custom
segmentation rules for Japanese. If they are not good enough it
is possible to talk to them, provide patches or even talk
to Unicode consortium if the existing basic algorithm
(not locale specific rules) does not lead to good results.

Also this library does not deal directly with text layout
as it is out of the scope of this library.
