I don't think I was aware that Shavian had been approved. When did this
happen? In WG2 we processed Etruscan, Gothic, Deseret, Byzantine Musical
Symbols, and Western Musical Symbols.

There's an argument about Shavian. It's famous, and is written about
frequently -- but as far as I know only one book, Androcles and the Lion,
was published in it. I know that the WG2 representative from Finland has
misgivings about this.
