One part of 'how we managed fonts so far' was to triple-check anything
CJK-related and get it approved by the i18n team because fontconfig sucks
in this case. This problem has been well known for several years, but
fontconfig's previous maintainer did not put a high priority on it.

Finding a solution for this case is on the huge TODO list Behdad published
this summer.
