	I don’t think so, unfortunately.  Someone has proposed to fix omissions 
by taking from a different version in a different dialect of the 
language, without bothering to really check the original version.  Isn’t 
that lack of respect for text integrity?

	And which version would be that?  I assume it is something other than 
PorAA and its Revisada original, since they have nothing to do with SBP 
but are IBB’s.

	Anyway, a new version is mostly welcome, and perhaps SBP will be in a 
better position than Brazilian societies which basically see all this as 
an enterprise, and thus are little likely to relent.
