I answered Leon privately, but just so he can unfold his hands and continue
typing, I will point out to the mailing list that Nippon, China and Korea have
historically not been the best of friends, and it is interesting that Free and
Open Source seems to be one item pulling them together.

On the other hand, the Asian philosophies tend to look at long term projects
with much more ease than current Europeans or people from the US, who seem to
be more focused on quarterly (or monthly) profits.
