You should have stated what are the good parts:-)
- support for stateful multibyte encoding like iso-2022 variants,
X11 ctext, and others (this is VERY important for asian people
as we can't write emails without stateful multibytes. and no
other locale/runelocale library supports this...)
- routines for multibyte <-> wide-char conversion routines are
dynamicaly loadable as necessary.
- binary compatible with existing NetBSD runelocale libraries.
(due to dl* twists the part experiences hard time...)
Soda-san, please add other details.
