Yeah, but I would think that would be a real drawback when
there's something like 2000 to 10,000 characters to train
on!  I think you'd need some kind of short cut (maybe you
could share radical information between characters?).

But I guess I assumed this would already be a solved problem
by now.  Maybe it was a lot harder than expected.
