 We don't use negatively-named variants anymore (e.g. variant name begins
 with "no").

 Disabling entry point renaming by default would change the files installed
 by the port, which would warrant the port's revision being increased.

 Wouldn't disabling entry point renaming cause all ports linked with the
 library to no longer work (because they were using the renamed entry
 points) and need to be rebuilt?

 Wouldn't making this a choice that a user can select via variant mean that
 a port built against icu with the variant selected would not work with icu
 without the variant selected, and vice versa? This would wreak havoc given
 that we build binaries on our servers, using only default variants.
