Right now is there any good candidate tool to replace it?
otherwise it's required to do print the Korean text out.

lynx/elinks has a problem to look at each native encodings
which almost website uses since we are using UTF-8
locale. w3m only can takes care of it. for m17n, we should
keep w3m in FC for the usability.

w3m-el might be moved into FE, but not w3m as the above

Don't move. IIIMF is just a framework, and Canna is used as
the backend of Japanese.

VFlib2 is required for the correct vertical writing printing
on ghostscript. don't break it without any fixes.
