I just read Matz's slides from (http://www.rubyist.net/~matz/slides/rc2003/) the
2003 IRC, and I was happy to see that multilingualization ("m17n") is on the
menu for Ruby 2.0. However, I couldn't find any specifics about it--how it's
going to work, etc. I ask because I regularly work with multilingual corpora
(NLP research), and I just had to scrap a concise Ruby script with a crummy Java
tool when I had to work with Chinese (GB-1232-encoded) texts. I'd even offer my
help towards the effort, if it's needed.
