    Yes, I really should do that one of these days. *sigh*

    BTW, I think where we're running aground is on the use of the term
    "fantasy script." I'd define that as a writing system developed
    initially (if not primarily) for use in a fictional universe. This
    would include Tengwar and Klingon, but it would leave Deseret and
    Shavian out of the running, because they were intended for a real use
    in our largely non-fictional universe.
