If there is no other Chinese fonts cover those code points, for example, any
thing between U3400~U4FD5, the best you can get is to display them with bitmaps
as wqy-bitmap-fonts covers them. Even for U4E00~U9FA5, UMing have a few
thousands missing, those missing ones will still be displayed by bitmaps.
Without installing wqy-zenhei, what you suggested is simply not possible.

Seriously, I don't have time to argue with you. If you have the authority to
modify cvs, go ahead, I don't care. If you believe you can convince me your
"long term" solution is better, go write one that works for all the tests in
Comment#54, particularly the English desktop. I will commit it without a single
more word.
