    I say Greek just so people will know what the symbol looks like.

    The small lamda with stroke is also used in this language, the λ being
    voiced [dl] and ƛ being voiceless [tɬ]. There will also need to be a
    capital for ƛ, but as this is already Latin script, I didn’t mention it.

    Great. Then I will get back to the communities with this information and
    start the proposal process.
