What I wanted to express is that the set of Hiragana/Katakana which -
as you correctly point out is of little use - is more complete than
that for Cyrillic - which is much more important.

I did include some typos, sorry. The issue is that several characters
are missing

I would do that manually to make sure that no such things will happen
but unfortunately I did delete the sources of Links 2.0pre3 on my
machine and they did vanish from the FTP server so I simply can't
merge :-(

"Pros(i)t!" is what one would says immediately before a full glass of
Vodka suddenly becomes an empty one. (a gourmet wouldn't say that if
he drinks a good wine). Outside of that context it is used in terms
like "Na dann mal prost (Mahlzeit!)".

An administrator that is told migration from an S/390 to a cluster of
ordinary PCs running Windows XP might utter:

"The S/390 will be removed thursday next week? Na dann mal pros(i)t
(Mahlzeit!)" - "Pros(i)t  can have quite negative implications.
