Currently zh_CN.GB2312 should be the one that's used the most
extensively in Debian, although there are often problems 
here and there. Personally I'm waiting for the locales support
in glibc to stablize, as I know they are making a new repertoiremap,
and so the GB locales may need to be rewritten soon (although I'm
not 100% sure). I forsee that there'll also be GBK in glibc as
things proceed.

As I don't want to rush for a temporary solution, I'm not doing
much work in improving a better GB environment. I would rather
look for opportunities to help glibc to achieve what they think as
the 'right way to do'.
Of course, anyone who is willing to persue this can send bug reports
to appropriate developers :)
