I can't heard the base of glyph. And we can't detect the problem part
because he recycled part of glyph widely. But Mr.Uchida is rewriting
the problem part now. It will take more one of half year to finish
removing the problem. In addition, if kandata is legal, he don't like
that we distribute kandata under such a unclear situation.

So, I decided that I wait his work. I'll make kandata package
after the problem will be removed.
