<< My French dictionary is a very old French-Dutch one and it confirms
 what I already thought: literally "do-it-yourself" (Boudewijn says
 the very word "bricolage" is on French do-it-yourself shops) but he
 probably means it in a derogatory sense, "pottering, amateur work".


Yes. "bricoler" often means "to bungle". But I think that's what I've been
doing with my conlangs a life long ;-)
