OK, I'm about >this close< to setting some Vietnamese text in Sütterlin,
and Fraktur too while I'm at it, and showing it to my Vietnamese
co-workers just to see what they do think. Everything else is pure

Vietnamese in Sütterlin ought to be an interesting challenge, because
(as those of you who can read Sütterlin know) the 'u' has a breve over
it to distinguish it from an 'n', and in Vietnamese the letter 'a' can
have a real breve over it, but 'u' cannot.
