I never requested the removal of the HELLO file. All I said was that as long
as it was maintained in utf-7, it was not especially useful as test file for
people who are trying to get their CJK working right.

This seems like a good approach. I appreciate your efforts to
understand the issue.

Whatever. Hopefully, as Emacs 21.3-5 with the appropriate Mule settings is
widely proliferated, this will be a moot issue. Emacs is a superb piece of
work, and I appreciate the efforts of all its developers to continually
expand its versatility.
