Chinese font projects?

    I am thinking of starting a project that is to create a free, complete, Chinese TrueType font. I know there are many Chinese fonts, TrueType and other, but I find that they very often lack even quite common characters; and of course, none of them cover the entire range of characters defined in the UniHan database (see: unicode.org).

    I thought it would be nice to do something about this - get a group of people together, split the dataset up in some manageable pieces, and use FontForge to do the actual work. It is actually a lot less strenuous than it sounds, since Chinese characters are made up of a quite limited set of smaller bits, so much of the work could be done by copying/pasting things together. We could probably start from an existing font and fill in the missing bits. How about it?
