The ISO 639-2/RA hasn't started their winter holiday yet, and they have 
announced a change: the name "Pashto" has been added (finally) to the 
existing code element formerly described as just "Pushto."

Here is a proposed record for the Registry that we can review over the 
nice, quiet Solstice holiday, so it can be approved after Michael comes 

Type: language
Subtag: ps
Description: Pushto
Description: Pashto
Added: 2005-10-16
Suppress-Script: Arab

Note that only the second Description field is new; the Suppress-Script 
is already there.
