All I remember about this was that I don't think it fixed the problem I
was trying to solve :) I had the patch in a stash for a while before
submitting it.

I don't even know what icu4c actually does, so I'm not very well placed
to look at this further, but I'm glad you and Leo seem to be getting
something from it :)
