How much does this add to Emacs memory footprint when loaded?  Since
this will be required only rarely, I doubt that it would be a good
idea to force every user of Chinese language to pay the price, if it
is significant.  It would be better to have this as a separate file
with autoloaded variable or function, IMO.

source-directory might not exist in a given installation.

Maybe we should have the data copied into that separate file I
mentioned above.

Thanks.
