Description: A droid derived Sans-Seri style CJK font
 WenQuanYi Micro Hei font family is a Sans-Serif style (also known as Hei,
 Gothic or Dotum among the Chinese/Japanese/Korean users) high quality
 CJK outline font. It was derived from "Droid Sans Fallback", "Droid
 Sans" and "Droid Sans Mono" released by Google Corp. This font package
 contains two faces, "Micro Hei" and "Micro Hei Mono", in form of a
 True-Type Collection (ttc) file. All the unified CJK Han glyphs, i.e.
 GBK Hanzi, in the range of U+4E00-U+9FC3 defined in Unicode Standard 5.1
 are covered, with additional support to many other international
 languages such as Latin, Extended Latin, Hanguls and Kanas. The font
 file is extremely compact (~5M) compared with most known CJK fonts.
 As a result, it can be used for hand-held devices or embedded systems, or
 used on PC with a significantly small memory footprint. Because both
 font faces carry hinting and kerning instructions for Latin glyphs,
 they are the excellent choices for desktop fonts.

the size of 20100327 daily build is about 690M, which should be fine to include this font. otherwise the user experience for CJK users will be too bad, since if users choose corresponding language, those characters can't be rendered in ubiquity's UI, because of lack of proper fonts.
