Hmm, well. If he can do better, then we won't complain at all.

He already add the utf-8 support (though I have not checked it),
so I hope he can add a better support for i18n and l10n.
Multi-language support with utf-8 is really great, but I think it is
not enough for us. We need the support for euc-jp at the current
level at least. I am okay to help him in order to accomplish this.
I think I can check his code to see if it can show Japanese characters
correctly. Some of our members also can do it, I hope.
