Hmm.  If at all, I suggest an extension to the groff font format to
avoid zillions of files for locales...  I suspect that the number of
character widths affected by the locale are minor.  Honestly, right
now I'm not aware of a single one which *must* change.  Could you
provide examples?

Regarding CJKV environments, it's a matter of the document style
whether, say, the ASCII range gets treated as double-width characters,
it's not a necessity.

It really depends on the number of affected characters to decide which
of the two suggested solution is preferable.


Thanks.  I'm bad in working with bazaar.  How can I get a diff file to
the trunk?
