As a slightly different approach, I think I've been able to modify
the suffix pattern so that it only accepts "european" characters
in the suffix.  (These are code points U+0020 to U+058f for those
who follow such things.)  Non-european characters, such as those
that come from asian languages, are not included in any link suffix.

Does this sound like a good approach to you, and could you test
this on pmwiki.org (in one of the utf-8 groups) and let me know
if it seems to be working the way you would want for Chinese?
