Well, it started out as a collection of our langs, but it seems to have
changed since then. At least, I think it started out with just our
langs. I'd personally prefer only our conlangs, after all, you wouldn't
have Michelangelo or Picasso in a collection of paintings by a
particular group of artists. But, that's just my two cents, and a
seemingly very minority opinion.
