  A Japanese version of Etoys is shipped with Mona-font (which is
"free") pre-loaded.  Now it could be externalized.

  Not really tested with whole coverage of Deja-Vu and cannot tell
that real text in these language can be rendered, but with rough
eyeball checking, if we ship Deja-Vu, Mona, and some free
fonts for chinese and Korean I could say:

Coverage less than 1% and could be rendered:
Catalan, Icelandish, Bulgarian, Polish, Macedonean, Romanian

Coverage between 1% and 70% and could be rendered:
Dutch, Iceland, Italian, Portugese

Coverage more than 70% and could be rendered:
Greek, Kreyol, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish (non-latin1 version and
latin1 version), German, French, Russian, Simplified Chinese,
Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Mongolian (in Cyrillic)
