Wonderful.  I just recently read a post from February 1994*, where you
used many of the same examples (although they didn't have the Lojban
versions then) in the archive at  It was a memorable post
then, and this version is even better (although if it's in the Lojban
reference grammar, I already had a copy somewhere - I really should
read more of it).
