I think this would be to the ultimate detriment of the library. Anything
Boost.Text can do for the user is a boon in this regard and only increases
the quality of the lib.

I think this would be the best path forward. Obtaining a dynamic version
of libicu is relatively straight-forward on all systems and would dodge the
licensing issues.
