This DSA made me aware that there might be a problem in texlive. It
contains a changed copy of libicu; the changes are needed by xetex, and
xetex upstream intends to have them merged. But for the time being, the
code copy is there.

I fear I won't have time to work on a security update of texlive right
now, and Norbert is busy as well. 

I have added the information to embedded-code-copies, a diff (which also
includes some more TeXLive-related corrections) is attached.
