Simple English can be a good test ground for English-only programmers
:-) and is a viable candidate for inclusion in images for countries
where ESOL is common or desired. SJ pointed out that its quality is a
bit uneven but that's about par for the course w Wikipedia (I didn't
spot anything too weird).

I'd love to get my hands on the tools too ;-) -- maybe he's published
them and I've missed the msg?
