Comment(by kamstrup):

 I've taken rboulton's branch from github and started to massageit into
 Xapian trunk. To add some some confusion to our VCS party you can find it
 in a bzr repo here https://code.launchpad.net/~kamstrup/xapian/cjk-
 support. As of writing it's still just baby steps - so nothing to see yet.
 When it is ready I'll post a patch here for those with bzr allergies :-)

 I've extracted what I could from Olly's comments into the following

  * Include the module in a new subdir xapian-code/queryparser/cjk/
 (nothing in include/ until the API is acked)

  * Get rid of the excessive copying by using Utf8Iterator and on-the-fly

  * Rely solely on Xapian's unicode handling (iow no new deps)

  * License wise - we talking X11/MIT licensed code. Maybe we can talk
 Richard and Yung-chung Lin into dual licensing under GPL as well as a stop
 gap measure?
