I think this is a Good Thing, but Japanese Texinfo files are difficult
to process with the standard tool, as I explained some time ago. So
please give me an advice about how I should maintain the Japanese
version of the manual.

At least four ways would be possible:

1. The Japanese version is a plain text as before.
2. Some tricks to deal with Japanese Texinfo are added into Parted
   (stolen from GNUjdoc).
3. Not distributing it with Parted, but it is included in GNUjdoc,
4. Pre-formatted Info files are distributed.

I don't know which is the best, but it is clear that I don't like the
first, as syncing with the original would be much harder.
