Not sure what you want to say, but personally I rather like "really cute
and totally unavailable under Unix."

I admit that _in retrospect_ it seems that the three defines really should
have been all within SH_EX as the changes were preferences of a handful of
people represented by one programmer.  I think there was a general feeling
at the time the patch was incorporated, however, that the changes would be
quite beneficial overall.  Looking back through CHANGES I can see Leonid
and others worked pretty hard to make the added features fully functional
without affecting other ports.  

The code under all three of those *_EX defines needs to be revisited and
either brought out from under them or discarded as appropriate.  It seems
the CJK_EX stuff is nearly obsolete?  (At least I'm not aware of anything
possibly under CJK_EX except the manual override routines.)  Now's the time
since a new development round has just started.
