*blush* oops ... my work is in fact 5 months overdue ... it started
way back in January -_-;

Seems like I'd have to do some more work this weekend :p
(the code is sitting on my hard disk, just needs to be cleaned up and
 packaged.  I have been using it for 5 months, so you can say it's
 tested :p)

If I haven't been so lazy we'd have beaten them by a couple of months..
in fact it was "nearly" demoed at Linuxworld HK ...

Actually, IIRC, someone mentioned this very same subject in 
netscape.public.mozilla.i18n way back in January .. I think the
the Mozilla team was then concerned with whether HKSCS is a widely
accepted and used standard.  Not sure what happened then since.

I haven't been able to have a look at the "Technical White Paper" yet,
which, of course, is in Word97 .doc format...
