There are easily thousands of the 7000+ languages for which it would not be "too hard to find info".

I assure you that adding 50 new s-s tags would be onerous. That's 100 separate e-mails, and no, I can't "script" it and automate it. Nor, I think, can Amanda process them in an automated fashion, though at least she's paid to do this work.

See my comments in the previous e-mail. This seems to be an arcitectural matter.
