I just submitted a patch to integrate CJKCodecs into python.
As I remember, the problems mentioned on a previous discussion about
this are these three:
Python+CJKCodecs is just 102% of the original by source size and
104% by source line counts. Installed binary size is about 2.5MB.
I think it's not a big size for todays harddisks.
2) Backward Compatibility with C/J/K Codecs
with ChineseCodecs: it's perfectly compatible except ChineseCodecs'
with JapaneseCodecs: it's now compatible enough to use. the only
difference is ISO-2022-JP's error handling for bytes set MSB which
is very unusual and invalid.
with KoreanCodecs: it's perfectly compatibie.
I can maintain it on Python CVS by myself now. :)
And I put cjkcodecs files into Modules/cjkcodecs/, but I can't sure
this is the right place to put them.
Any opionions will be appreciated.
