Well, in the present tense (old active participle) you MUST use personal
pronouns, this helps. But what i REALLY like is the absense of any
difference between 2m.sn and 3f.sn, and 2f.pl and 3f.pl forms in the future
tense (old imperfect). That's fun, and completely Ebisedian!

What on earth is this "ferret" he's gonna give for thy sake?
