Damn, you're right ! Shame on me.
You can do the change in SVN. Note that SVN is better than CVS for this. 
You don't need to delete and add the file again. You just need to 
"rename" it.

This is done automatically by Apache. It works for other languages. It's 
just that for japanese the extension was wrpong so far.

It's already handled in httpd.conf, don't worry :)
