Good enough for me.  Do you have an opinion on whether falling back to
BIG5 when BIG5-HKSCS is not available [in Gnus, for displaying
incoming e-mail in BIG-5HKSCS], is a reasonable behaviour?

I browsed the BIG5-HKSCS specification, and it appear to add lots of
characters (~1500) but it didn't seem to alter any, and I can't tell
whether the additions are critical or just rarely used symbols.  I
doubt rendering it as BIG5 is worse than QP, though, which is the
current behaviour.
