BTW, while looking closer, I'm inclined to think that maybe their
opinion doesn't matter that much: while the general issue of font choice
for CJK text in Elisp files might really affect some users, in the
specific case of the files affected by this patch I believe this likely
isn't the case, because while there are affected *chars*, there is no
affected *text*.  More specifically, AFAICT the affected chars are all
part of the code and they represent themselves rather than being used as
a carrier for a specific meaning in a text (because all this code is
about how to insert specific chars).

[ Snipped the rest about etc/HELLO.  ]

        Stefan "I asked Chong what he thought about it but said that
                he's not using CJK enough to be a good source of opinion"
