We aren't talking about N'Ko here.

This mini-project is about languages that have click letters in their 
names, which have heretofore been represented by ASCII fallbacks. Now 
that we have opened the door for click letters with the addition of 
ǂUngkue, we are going to go back and add additional (non-primary) 
Description fields with the correct click letters. And while we're at 
it, we're also going to put the proper apostrophe-like letters in the 
new fields.

N'Ko already has an alternative Description field that differs only by 
apostrophe type. It doesn't have click letters. We have no reason to 
mess with it here.
