I think Oliver meant that creating a dummy ICUInterface.dll would allow
the current VME to work without modification.

Wow - now that is worth having, let me know if I can help.

Does ICU4J have a means of updating the data (without moving up to a new
release)?  IIRC ICU4C has an associated tool to update timezone and
locale info when, for example, the Olson timezone data is updated for
new daylight savings.  I realize I'm probably asking on the wrong list,
just wondered if you knew -- I couldn't see it obviously on the website.
