Because the current fvwm95 can handle multi-byte character,
especially, it can handle Japanese menu entry very well so
I just reported to BTS so that system.fvwm95rc of Japanese 
version will be included in the next fvwm95 package.

I am not sure if it will be adopted or not but if it is adopted
then it will be of great help for Debian users.

And I think the current fvwm95 is of much more particular use 
to the end user than the before version.

I can not understand why Branden Robins said like

What do you mean with "unless it has also been localized"?

Does this sentence mean "if a localized menu entry is not 
provided" or much more profound theory on locale or so?

And why do you conclude "it is not of particular use to the 
end user" so simply?

I would like to know why this seemingly evident fact leads to
so different conclusions between us.

Thanks in advance,		2000.3.15
