[Suppress-Script] Initial list of 300 languages

John's list is a great starting point: it has evidently sparked the 
necessary discussion and debate.

In the general case, if there is any well-thought-out, non-frivolous 
doubt as to whether a given language is *overwhelmingly* written in a 
single script, it should be self-evident that the Right Thing is *not* 
to specify a Suppress-Script for that language.

With regard to Klingon, PLEASE let's end that debate right now.  Don't 
specify a Suppress-Script for Klingon, and let's be DONE with it.  I 
really hate to see meaningful, principled discussions like this get 
bogged down over Klingon.  There ought to be a variant of Godwin's Law 
to the effect that the probability of a discussion on this list 
involving Klingon approaches 1.
