  • for 'prebuilt data' (packaged icu-src.tgz/zip, reading from icu/source/data/in/*.dat) - don't use makefiles at all for building data. Put the "swap endianness and build a DLL/etc" default behavior into tools.

  • for 'build from source' data: '''prereq python''', rewrite the build for Win/Posix and for test data to all be in python, make it more flexible/readable/maintainable
