Subject RE: Korean script conversion
Date Tue, 31 Mar 2015 05:40:45 GMT
We only want the conversion Hanja->Hangul, for each Hanja character there exists only one
Hangul character that can replace it in a Korean text.
The other way around is not convertible. 
We want to allow searching in both scripts and find matches in both scripts.

Why do you think that this is a good idea? Hanja are used for special purposes; they are not
trivally convertable to Hanjul due to ambiguity, and it's not at all clear that a typical
search user wants to treat them as equivalent.
