Actly it was IALists' catfighting that had AUXLANG created initially -- to keep'em off CONLANG... My theory is that their theory is like that of religious faction-fundamentalists: "if all believers believed the way we believe then EVERYBODY would become a believer". Makes no sense here or there, of course... /BP 8^)> -- B.Philip Jonsson (delete X) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Truth, Sir, is a cow which will give [skeptics] no more milk, and so they are gone to milk the bull." -- Sam.
