I'm sorry; I don't think my post was clear. Yes, I agree that Huffman
encoding should work well on any language. However, you can avoid the
two passes by using known character distributions in a language. This
is what would be different from one language to the other.

A two-pass system would work well on any language, with the obvious
performance tradeoffs.
