The constraints are what makes it interesting. That's why I
prefer auxlangs. There is a definite goal and parameters to work
within. Creating an auxlang is more like an engineering problem
to be solved. I don't realistically expect any of my auxlangs to
be used (though there has been some interest), it's just an
interesting mental excercise to create them.
