This DUPLICATION is real problem, since asian fonts are large files.

(Well, having emacs23 and emacs24 does not hurt as user except size.)
This is data file with large overlap.  I am not capable but
truetype/opentype system have ways to address this duplication issue
with true type font collection.

If someone comes up with smart build system to build a one file for both
font, that will be nice using multiple source archive.

Another thing missing on our system is easy ways to configure font
system default for each unicode segment with selectable features.
Manual editting of xml file is not so intuitive.
