IIRC, it means "clan" (literally, "mother's milk") in some other Austronesian language, too. But in this case it is simply iterated "su". Saying "su" deletes everything you have said, but if you have said nothing, it deletes everything that everyone has said. So you can see that "susu" works as "delete all". -- John Cowan I am a member of a civilization. --David Brin
