	If you do **information preserving** translations,
	it really doesn't matter what you write in as long
	as you can translate it to the lingua fraca of a site.

	If someone wants to write in gronk* and translate to
	YODL, send me a gronk manual and I'll send you an
	awk script back, for you to improve on... hacking
	the translate script will probably teach you enough
	YODL you can write natively in it after a few days.
