Yeah.  I just finished merging varities of codecs into few per-locale
			before		after
_codecs_cn.so		159851		130769
_codecs_jp.so		340350		241307
_codecs_kr.so		150269		125508
_codecs_tw.so		110057 		 97567
_codecs_unicode.so	 17050		 12332
_multibytecodec.so	 24438		 24439
			802015		631922

As a result, 166KB is saved by this unification.  And, I guess that
builtin codec initialization time in Windows may be saved also.  :)
