Lingua::ZH::PinyinConvert::ID

Today I released Lingua::ZH::PinyinConvert::ID. This release is dedicated to the recently deceased former President of Indonesia, Abdurrahman Wahid, which in 2001 declared Chinese new year as national holiday as well as re-allowed the use of Chinese characters and the expression of Chinese culture in daily life, thus ending the 30 years of anti-Chinese laws during the Suharto regime.

Sadly, a generation of Indonesian Chinese people grew up while being cut off from their heritage, not learning Chinese languages nor a lot of the Chinese culture. This will probably be fixed in the next couple of generations as many elementary schools now start to include Mandarin in their curriculum.
