Re: Cyrillic letters for /T/ and /D/

How would you all react to a (non-Slavic) Cyrillic-based
alphabet using upside-down Cyrillic {s} and {z} for /T/ and
/D/? The idea is that a 19th century alphabet maker was able
to turn existing lead types upside down to create new
symbols, but not to add diacritics or wholly new shapes.

Wasn't their a native Cyrillic character for /T/?  If I'm remember
right, it looked like an upper case Roman V.  The letter I'm
thinking of is a V with a little tail on the upper right.  It's pictured
here, but it doesn't give it's value, unless I'm missing it:


"A male love inevivi i'ala'i oku i ue pokulu'ume o heki a."
"No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn."
