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...
