Chris, come on over to the auxlang list, then, because there are some
interesting non-Euroclone things going on. Also check out a page from
my ilomi site, http://ca.geocities.com/handydad/elomi/elomi-qa.html --
about half-way down, under "Influences", there are links to some
influential and _different_ auxlangs (and of course ilomi is pretty
different in its own right). Finally, you're welcome to contribute or
lurk in the Yahoo discussion group
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Demos-IAL-Project/ (you have to sign up,
it's not wide open).
