Dear Craig,

thank you very much for putting Anii into the list of "available
languages". I did not know there would be a 1.4.4 and that is good news too.

I know about "splicing our stuff" into existing structures. We have to
do the same for our self-written keyboards for Anii. Windows does not
allow new languages, so we do something similar.

Why would you need our .dic file? It is not secret, but is evolving
every week (4000+ entries). Anii is a minority language, spoken by not
more than 50000 people and outside our office there is most likely
nobody who does any publishing in Anii (yet) and we are still trying to
promote the existence of Scribus.

If you just want to have a look, I could send you a sample off list. But
it should not be shipped together with Scribus at this point.
