Should I wait it?

I see. But IMO, libgcj's Japanese converter isn't good idea because
converters are provided with native interface. If I use native
interface, I would prefer iconv. If I don't use native interface, I
prefer _Java_ converter though it may lost performance...

I also refered and in
Kaffe. They are more reusable because they are separated character
tables from converter classes.

Could we migrate Kaffe's (it's GPL) code ?
