no need for icu, my mu.py works

I've add mu.py in reportlab/pdfgen/ and after importing pyfribidi I put
from mu import shape as muShape

then replaced
text = log2vis(text, directions.get(self.direction, DIR_ON))

text = log2vis(muShape(text), directions.get(self.direction, DIR_ON))

here is the result of
import reportlab.rl_config
reportlab.rl_config.warnOnMissingFontGlyphs = 0
from reportlab.pdfbase import pdfmetrics
from reportlab.pdfbase.ttfonts import TTFont
from reportlab.pdfgen import canvas
c = canvas.Canvas("hello.pdf")
c.setFont("Sans", 14)
c.drawString(100,100,"كلام جميل".decode('utf-8'))
