    No such luck! :)

    I've got Peter Kirk on my side at least.

    As a general topic, this is the most important possible discussion that could
    be had -- on the basic structural functionality of Unicode itself.

    And as well as the general subject, I will be detailing some further specific
    cases that really need to be solved -- somehow.

    I will be illustrating "differentiation" solutions to those problems -- and
    that will be the ideal opportunity for you to show that "differentiation" is
    *not* needed -- because you are able to actually solve, and not ignore, that
    real-world problem with some other approach.

    Your Serbian "t" solution is awkward but at least usable. We'll see about
    other cases -- umlaut vs. diaeresis in particular.

    However, it sounds like you may simply be interested in maintaining and
    defending the status quo, and are irritated by even hearing an open debate
    which challenges that.

    Email filtering -- or simply not reading posts on this subject -- should solve
    your personal problem in this regard, without imposing censorship on the list.
