Subject: Re: Bug#482855: Fails to compile Russian document
From: Andreas Hoenen

Hi BenoÃt,

I want to inform you about dblatex bug reports #482855 [1] and #482856
[2], both symptoms of the same issue:

If one transforms a document containing cyrillic characters (russian,
ukranian), TeX macros of package unicode.sty get used, however the
package is only included when one explicitly sets option '-P
latex.unicode.use=1'.  Otherwise the TeX compilation fails with quite
technical error messages.  The option actually is documented in the user
manual, nevertheless it can easily be missed/forgotten.  Thus it seems
to be a usability question:

Would it be possible to include the package automatically if its content
gets used?  I can imagine several solutions (in decreasing

1) An "intelligent" approach: include the package automatically if it is

2) Include the package if the document's lang attribute suggests that
   cyrillic characters will be used (we could start with 'ru' and 'uk'
   :-) )

3) Unconditionally include the package in all documents (provided that
   it doesn't have any negative side effects).

(BTW, the example document is quite interesting due to its many
 translations: "Debian GNU/Linux Reference Card")
