When Jeff started the thread he said he wanted to avoid causing problems
for distributors.

I had an idea of how distributors could cope with this.

 1) Keep one package of all unoffensive flags, and make separate
    packages for flags which are problematic (i.e. Taiwan).
 2) In the installation process, check if the locale is China and if so
    don't install the Taiwan flag package.

That seems fairly easy to do. Problem solved :)


PS. Here's some links about the Taiwan flag issue:
