Hey Tom,

If people would like to have corresponding for any
version of, that's fine. It would just be a matter of
ensuring the "base" version is available for the latest one in use as
I'd rather not accumulate many older versions. This is a similar
situation to things like Batik or Lucene, where platform handles the
set of bundles it cares about, but anyone wanting more has to do the
extra work.

The discussion for Platform to move to plain icu4j (from maven) was in (comments 11-17)
so it made sense to have everyone using the same thing, but maybe other
projects outside SimRel may still want a smaller version so I'm not
opposing this. For those projects, there is also the Photon Orbit repo
which has the older versions (containing icu.base) as well.
