Hmm... that doesn't sound like it would be a very common problem, but
it's not completely hypothetical either.  Would this problem also come
up in a BIG5 locale?  If not, then I think we can ignore this problem.

The problem with it is that it costs all the time for everyone, and it
makes the behavior of some macros subtly more complex/different and
hence adds a nasty complexity.
So if at all possible, I'd rather find a way to remove it (not for
24.1, obviously).

But I guess this problem is even much less common.
