Until and unless someone requests it, the less said about Tongyong
Pinyin the better.  As I posted a while back, it is the product of
one man who had enough pull to get his system made official, but kept
changing his mind over details, so there's not a single TYPY system
(unlike HYPY which has been stable for over 50 years) but many.  It is
also no longer official anywhere.
