The problem I was having is that my phonology is too small for a really satisfying difficult orthography, or too big. (I could see a conlang with no voice distinction using voiced glyphs for unvoiced+a common vowel, or for a common type of cluster...) Certainly I could cut down on my glyph pool, or something atrocious like that... --- Shreyas
