Huh, I don't see "big5", just the latter:
2 lines matching "big" in buffer *Help*.
     30:152(98) chinese-big5-1                  98 XX XX        2 94 0
     31:153(99) chinese-big5-2                  99 XX XX        2 94 1

oh, I see this hasn't been added yet.  OK, but you must somehow
separate the two flavors of output makers in the list...

K> As I wrote before, in the current code, the menu "List
K> Character Sets" (i.e. M-x list-character-sets) shows also
K> Big5 in the section "INDIRECTLY SUPPORTED CHARACTER SETS".

Oh, I'm still using emacs-version"21.2.1" so I don't see that I guess.
