I believe that if you provide your "smart" ideas to help improve the rendering
setting of this font, it will be much better than throwing cold words to your
peer developers.

If you are an expert on fontconfig, please advise me how to write a conf file to
make this font be the default font when rendering Chinese characters (sans,
serif or mono), while using vector fonts for non-Chinese characters.

The reason that we raised the priority of this font is because the vector font
rendering of Chinese is terrible and hard to read, and the embedded bitmaps of
the default Chinese font, UMing, are neither complete nor optimized
(wqy-bitmap-fonts is based on those bitmaps and experienced 3 years of manual
fine-tuning). Because Uming is APL and not compatible with GPL, we are unable to
merge this to Uming.
