       Your posting was by no means annoying, at least to me. Except
       for a couple of very minor points not worth mentioning, I fully
       agree with your comments. I hope you understand that my
       comments, to which you were responding, were intended only

       - to attempt to give some kind of answer to Edward C's question
       about how many of the world's languages already have writing
       systems, and
       - to clarify that SIL does not have as an agenda to develop
       writing systems for every one of the world's languages (we are
       willing to assist any language community with such a desire,
       within the limits of currently available resources, but we
       can't decide that a language community *will* become literary).
