Hi and thank you for your contribution!
I am tagging this bug report as 'wontfix' for the following reasons:
1. The combination Cyrillic + Esperanto is supported by Uni2 and Uni3
2. Small fontsets (256 glyphs) are for one language only. Users who
need multilingual support should use Uni1, Uni2 or Uni3.
