Sorry for your inconvenience.

I guess what you want is something like a configurable
pluggable mechanism to insert and withdraw the PostScript
part of Koji Otani's gs8-cjk patch, by putting or deleting
the PostScript file.

If my guessing is right... in fact, I was asked for
such mechanism (enabled by default) in face-to-face
meeting with Artifex staff. But I could not make anybody
agreed. It seems that Artifex people believe CJK bug
will be recovered without Koji Otani's patch and such
mechanism is not required.

I remember, Ray and Ralph told it's possible to make gs
to load modified PostScript files stored in non-default
directories. I wish they can post step-by-step
configuration and test to do that.

I remember, the decision will be reconsidered if next
bumping release (gs8.70) cannot fix CJK issue.
