Aha.  Why don't you quit your day job and get a night job?  Then you
can work on Linux when you're awake!  :-P

I've looked at EDICT (which is the foundation of Jeff Friedl's
WWW/Perl-based dictionary at; they didn't use to allocate
enough resources to it and you could never get through :-( ), but
never got the emacs interface working right.  So it sorta slipped in
the last half-dozen major upgrades of libc and Ghostscript and XFree86
and the kernel and all those ELF binaries for X....  I've never used
xjdic.  I'll have to get to it in my "copious free time."  Basically,
I've found Wnn/Canna + my Zaurus to be equal to almost all my needs,
and never got around to customizing that portion of my system.
