It will take a week or two for lyx-cjk to go through, leaving a
lyx that's completely broken for any user of straight lyx. Any one
upgrading from Potato will lose here. The status quo is that lyx
works and lyx-cjk doesn't exist. It's not acceptable to break
what currently works in order to provide new functionality.
