    Which writing system do you want?

    The above mentioned project will hopefully include all the CJKV shapes
    as submitted by the IRG members in a distant future. Currently they
    include mostly HK, TW and JP shaped glyphs mixed together with some
    occasional CN glyphs in between. Work is underway to change that and
    provide all glyph shapes in separate virtual fonts. However, the project
    is lacking manpower to get this done in a timely manner. Any volunteers
    out there? :)
