And how do you get to pick those? There are a lot of people who  
speak, say, Mandarin who might not have a computer right now but will  
in a couple years' time. Do we ask them what they want or do we just  
go ahead with the (for the most part, blatantly useless) set of  
&eacute; and friends.

Maybe we should have a Rich White Men Consortium that would make  
"reasonable" specification?
