More archaic Lojban

Here are some more examples of archaic Lojban gismu.  These represent gismu
that were deleted for one reason or another (usually for insufficient
generality) before the Lojban gismu list was baselined.  I indicate the
gismu selected by the algorithms plus the English keyword, sometimes with
compatibility comments.
