Wenedyk uses Polish spelling, basically, where |rz| and |sz| are
digraphs for /Z/ and /S/, respectively. With devoicing after unvoiced
stops, I'd say that those two are /skS/ and /pS/, respectively, which
are not quite as daunting IMO -- the second even occurs in German,
e.g. in "grapschen" or (for me, at least) "hübsch".
