I tend to agree with Nicholas, present as I was from the very beginning of
the SWF chaotic mess.... that is, that anyone, or more than one person with
any knowledge of traditional Cornish was either not asked to take part or
removed if they were, by the usual overpowering presence of non expert
kemyn supporters... I washed my hands of the SWF at that point completely.
