waiting on yod

From:andrew <hobbit@...>

I am working on a new conlang with a nice range of sounds, including
(among others): /y/, /Y/, /j/ and /dZ/.  Initially /j/ was [y], and /dZ/
was [j].  Recently I decided to change /Y/ and /y/ from u-umlaut to y
and y-acute.  Now I have to figure out what to do with the consonants.
I don't think /j/ can remain [y], too confusing.  I am considering
changing it to [j], but that leaves me a loss what to do with /dZ/.  I
am debating [dj], with [tj] for /tS/, but I am wondering if there are
other options?

/S/ and /Z/ are not independent consonant values in this language, so
tsh and dzh are not available as options.
