I think you are being a bit unfair to poor Heather, since the thread you are referring to happens to take place on CeltiConlang. BTW I really enjoyed that post. After the numerals, the conjugation of "to be" is definitely my second-favourite thing to watch and collect. I felt tempted to counter-post the same thing in Wenedyk, but since I'm currently reworking a lot, I succeeded in restraining myself. I suggest you to cross-post it to Conlang.
