the juiciest part of Encode is gone. If it saves 50% or more I would
second that opinion but we all have to admit perl 5.8.0 is big, with or
I'm not arguing against that, I should know since I collected all the
stuff... but the Encode CJK is still 7 megabytes out of 25 (without
the CJK Encode shared objects are just few hundred kB). I think the
option is worth having.
