Right on!  It was only by actually trying to use Old Loglan that I was
led to appreciate both the good parts and the bad, a process which
after quite a number of convolutions by quite a number of people led
to the rebirth of Lojban.  Lojban has to be used and used and used until
the rough edges get worn off.
