The whole issue is still TBD as far as I know --- there were arguments
on both sides but not consensus, and if any committer has reviewed the
ICU patch in any detail, I didn't hear about it.

It'd probably be easier to get consensus for a "make it a compile-time
option" proposal than for a "wholesale replacement" proposal.
