Just a few remarks:
> - Tamito Kajiyama worked with Campbell on the Python issue with
non-latin fonts. Campbell found it's a bug in 3.3, but fixed in Python
3.4 (not officially released yet).
> Suggestion is to not release with a new Python now, but provide it as
official testbuild instead.
For the sake of Python's reputation, the bug is in Blender and not in
Python. The issue is about character encodings and not related to fonts.
KAJIYAMA, Tamito <rd6t-kjym at asahi-net.or.jp>
