It doesn't fix the potential effects on non-CJK users if decoding a
bit of Unicode text containing such a character will load the large
tables even if they're useless to the user.  Maybe there aren't many
people now with 48MB P133s or old SPARCs like me, in which case it's a
reasonable default, but I suggest an entry in NEWS/PROBLEMS about it.

I agree it should be on for CJK users anyway.  (I thought it was now
conditional on the language environment.)
