Thanks Norbert,

1) Regardless of timing, I believe it still needs to be reversed (although
since this should be an easy reverse, I hope with help it can be reversed

2) I am not sure what makes something qualify for backport, but if this is
needed, is there anything I need to do?

3) I am also involved in the development of the ICU break iterator for ICU
and I know it has not been fixed (nor will it be any time soon and possibly
never - even the Thai break-iterator is not 100% accurate).

If any more information is needed from anyone, please let me know if I can
clarify anything to help get this reversed.

Thanks for your time,
