BTW, one thing I was wondering about is how line breaking is assumed to 
work with CJK-scripts (or more generally with Unicode). Do you have any 
information on that? It seems that we're treating all of the CJK 
characters as non-breakable at this point which leads to odd effects 
when there are a few spaces included in the text.
