Here is why I put it in japanese:

#1 It's a japnese language-ready pkg.
#2 It's in japanese in FreeBSD.

I guess the bigger question raised by all this is, where do we want packages
like this to go?  What is the purpose of the "japanese" category?

a) It's for pkgs that support japanese.
b) It's for pkgs that only support japanese.
c) It's where we duplicate pkgs in other categories, with japanese support.

I think the fact is that 90% of the japanese pkgs are just japanese-enabled
ports of other packages, or add-ons, chich probably do belong there.
