    As someone who scans books for Project Gutenberg, I've scanned one
    book that will need Unicode Sumero-Akkadian Cuneiform by the time
    processing is done, and expect to scan more. I can't imagine where I'd
    need Phaistos; with one text, there's no need for a dictionary, and
    copies of the text will usually just be pictures.
