Nothing :-) It's a nice idea to provide default strings for (some)
Unicode blocks instead of the `brown fox' pangram.
Toshiya, ftview (and other demo programs) already provide the
possibility to view a string given on the command line, so it's not
clear to me what problem you see.

Here I disagree. The *library* itself shouldn't use C99, but I don't
object to using C99 for the demo programs, so please go ahead.
