how about vietnamese ... we need to move the berry names to akb then:

\starttypescript [berry] [t5]

should then become

\starttypescript [adobekb] [t5]

or better

\starttypescript [berry,adobekb] [t5]


\starttypescript [berry,adobekb] [texnansi]
\starttypescript [berry,adobekb] [ec]

does this makes sense?

(The u* and p* files do differ, don't they? If so, what are the 
compatibility issues involved? I remember some differences in spacing.)
