Thanks Chris. I've been building Sword against ICU 2.2 for the last few months 
with no problems except the one I just had. However, I haven't tried 
transliteration with 2.2. In what ways does icu-sword differ from ICU 2.0? 
I'm curious because ICU is now up to version 2.4 and it seems that it would 
probably be worth updating to that version eventually since there have been 
many major changes since 2.0. I would be willing to put in the work necessary 
to update sword to ICU 2.4 and test that no functionality was lost, but I 
just need to know what functionality I should be testing.
