[jsword-devel] Chinese and Chinese Simplified

Just wondering - do we want to allow Chinese to be searchable regardless of
whether it is traditional or simplified.

There is a small library (https://code.google.com/p/java-zhconverter/)
which does the conversion. My understanding is that traditional to
simplified is unique, and simplified to traditional is not always unique
(although the library I think only gives you one option).

My thought is that for chinese versions, we add the simplified/traditional
options in the same field of the index so that we can prevent user errors
(I've found myself raising a bug against Simplified Chinese not working,
but it was because I had a traditional Chinese version selected.). We would
never display these mappings, just use them to return results..

Just a thought.
