[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Could WordPress SEO be set up to calculate wordcount in Chinese? (1 post)

    WordPress version: 3.4.1
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.7

    I did this: Wrote a post in Chinese, set the target keyword and went to page analysis.

    I expected the plugin to do this: Count the number of Chinese characters, maybe.

    Instead it did this: Counts the number of sentences in Chinese.

    This isn't a huge problem, it'd just be nice to have it give green scores as it should for posts in Chinese. Currently, unless the post has 300+ sentences, any post in Chinese is limited to a yellow SEO score. Could it be set up so that on WordPress installs in Chinese to at least count the number of Chinese characters (not the same as words but would be a lot easier to code for), and maybe suggest at least 600 characters per post?
