No ICU in base. Just no.

I share this sentiment, too.

Do we use the bind-bundled idnkit for our bind build? Possibly we can
reuse the same for the postfix code too, if it's good enough for bind
it should be good enough for postfix.

It would be a shame to have smptutf8 just disabled.

Hmm, at the first sight, postfix uses ICU for two purposes:

(1) ASCII/UTF-8 domain name conversion
(2) casefold UTF-8 text for caseless comparison

(1) can be replaced by idnkit if someone writes wrapper functions.
(2) seems to be lacking from idnkit. We probably can write stripped-
down version of that function, derived from ICU.

Anyhow, it needs some work to enable smptutf8...
