Intent to package: kakasi

I'll upload this software as a Debian package.


* What is KAKASI ?

  KAKASI is the language processing filter to convert Kanji characters
to Hiragana, Katakana or Romaji(1) and may be helpful to read Japanese

  The name "KAKASI" is the abbreviation of "kanji kana simple
inverter" and the inverse of SKK "simple kana kanji converter" which
is developed by Masahiko Sato at Tohoku University. The most entries
of the kakasi dictionary is derived form the SKK dictionaries.  If you
have some interests in the naming of "KAKASI", please consult to
Japanese-English dictionary. :-)

  The kit of KAKASI includes C programs and Several kind of
dictionaries. The large dictionary "kakasidict" may be provided as
another file "kakasidict.YYMMDD.gz" since it is often revised and
really LARGE.

 (1) "Romaji" is alphabetical description of Japanese pronunciation.
