About not using ICU:

No, it means that we don't need ICU for the most part, all I18n is
done in our libraries code. The exception is that some collation
tables are not available without ICU, so ordering your strings in,
say, Finnish will not get it quite right (it will probably appear in
the same order regardless of the culture set for the thread).

We would appreciate all the help in implementing those few missing
features to really have no need for any ICU dependency.
