To be frank I think that's Debians problem, or to more accurate the
problem of those who insist on using apt-get for everything. If WineHQ
provides high quality tested binaries with ICU included, they can use
that if they want BiDi.
There will *always* be random distros that have packaging policy that
conflicts with Wine, I don't think we should let that dictate our choice
of libraries. If we switch to FriBiDi maybe that fixes the Debian case
but breaks the Mandrake case, or whatever.
