Since I haven't been reading detailed discussions on the list in most
cases during the last year, I have no idea what their objections are.
Unless you are merely saying that they disagree.

We have za'o debated the fact that ZAHO as a sumti tcita comes out
apparently backwards from ZAHO as an inflection on the selbri.  I'm not
going to try to reconstruct several months of discussions between Jorge
and me a couple of years ago - see the archives.  Either decision causes
problems.  The status quo wins, if only by default.
