I just took Japanese as exmaple for a language and script
that I don't know anything about. I would actually love
to learn some Japanese, but simply don't have the time
for learning it.

Anyway, I could just as well have chosen Tibetian, Thai or Limbu
scripts (which all look very nice, BTW):


Perhaps this is not as bad after all - I just don't think that
it will help code readability in the long run.
