  No, i think i'm merging the wheel to tip :p
  But, some (many?) of the patches are just 'Quick hack', so they could not
be applied to tip..

* Graph Issues
** Bug 287684 - UTF-8 chars incorrectly displayed on the dependency graph
** Bug 287682 - UTF-8 chars incorrectly displayed on the graphic reports
** Bug 364505 - Charts not localizable
* Comment Area
** Bug 388723 - Bugzilla 3.0 does not wrap Japanese comment text
* e-mail issues
** Bug 405444 - FormatDouble and FormatTriple mangle multi-byte strings in email
** Bug 405453 - bugzilla should encode X-Bugzilla header contents.
** (not-filed/rejected?) - Bugmail should support other encodings (not utf-8)

  i think the whole list is longer than above, but i forgot :-)

# the last one (for bugmail), some of webmails in Japan didn't support utf-8..
# defact-standard encoding for Japanese e-mail is 'iso-2022-jp', even now :)
