    The concept of what computer encoding IS in the first place is something
    that many historical scholars lack. And then building on that some
    notion of what unifying and disunifying scripts implies.

    Not that this necessarily should not be attempted, but it's very easy
    for us to forget how ignorant the other 99% of humanity, intelligent and
    learned though they be, is regarding computer technology.
