To me that is a big usability issue. I would not know how to let
user's know which scripts are appropriate for their language.
In pursuing some opportunities to translate BibleDesktop into other
languages, I found that some languages can be written in more than one
script. I already knew that was the case for simplified and
traditional Chinese, but it seems that it is more common than that.
So it is a many-to-many relationship between languages and scripts.
