This had been sent last night from the wrong email account, and
bounced. Here it is again.

I'm so far behind AGAIN with Conlang that it's getting time I stopped
complaining about it and decided not read every single message.
Anyway, IMO, you're onto solid gold here, Andreas. I demand CXS be
changed to be (more) logical (with respect to apical rhotics):
/r\/ - alveolar approximant
/r/ - alveolar trill
/4/ - alveolar tap
/r`\/ - retroflex approximant
/r`/ - retroflex trill
/4`/ - retroflex tap
And that's the way it should be. I will brook no discussion
whatsoever. Submit to my will immediately, puny humans.
