ICU Tokenizer

Tokenizes text into words on word boundaries, as defined in UAX #29: Unicode Text Segmentation. It behaves much like the standard tokenizer, but adds better support for some Asian languages by using a dictionary-based approach to identify words in Thai, Lao, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, and using custom rules to break Myanmar and Khmer text into syllables.
