I wouldn't know.  I was just objecting to the notion that such a font
was impossible.

If it exists in Fedora, here's one way you could find it:

 * Find a character that's supposed to be different in Chinese,
   Japanese, and Korean.
 * Find the Unicode codepoints that represent that character in the
   three languages.
 * Write HTML entities for those codepoints.
 * Write a script that loops over all the fonts you have, and, for
   each font Fred, emits:

    <li>Fred: <font face="Fred">$HTMLENTITIES</font></li>

 * Take the resulting HTML, view it in your Web browser, and start
   looking for a line where the three characters are different.
