I think the idea is that you'd have to use a special keyboard driver
if you wanted to type without needing to do workarounds like the four-
keypress dance he said he uses for the glottal stop character.
At least one of his proposals seems to contain a character which
isn't yet supported on many platforms using *any* keystrokes.
Given that special effort would be required in any event, I have no
idea why he is so dismissive of the existing PUA mapping for Klingon
