So we add it to the list of Blueberry legal character sets. No big deal. 

However, remember that GB-18030 has a 1-1 mapping to Unicode so nobody is required to use it. Every character in GB-18030 is available in Unicode. If it weren't, Blueberry would not be enough to fix the problem. The same is true of any other non-Unicode character set that's out there. It's sufficient to allow Blueberry marks on Unicode-encoded files. We can add as many others as we can find for convenience's sake, but we don't need to worry too much about missing any.
