Correction: the world population is about 6,300,000,000 and Chinese
population is about 1,300,000,000 . Japan and Korea (north and south)
is about 200,000,000 in total. Thus, CJK population is more than 1/5
in the world.
(This correction doesn't affect my opinion.)
Note that summation of CJK, bidi, and Indic people is more than 1/2
of the world population. Debian should not be designed only from the
viewpoint of European language speakers' convenience.
