I have aleady contacted to the tcl/tk's maintainer and it is decided that
they are to be separated from original tcl/tk so that the fact:

Becase new tcl/tk8.1 is inmplementing Unicode support, we will be not
to need -ja. But tcl/tk8.1 is not currently released and dupload to
Debian, too. So I need to dupload them to Debian as temporary needs.
(I think of Debian as the pool of all free software, not of Debian-JP.)

I need them *now*, not the future when making them merge, so
if the new version is released, I will withdraw them and orphan it.

We, I and tcl/tk's maintainer, compare the effort to merge with
the effort to wait and choose the latter :)
