I personally do not mind it and believe that the
phonology/phonotactics/morphology of Lojban should be freed up in a few
ways (including this one). I also can distinguish easily between this word
and all other words except "j!ie'e'e", where "!" represents any nonempty
string consisting of only "i"'s. I have no problems with this word. I in
fact like it. That having been said, I will concede to the opinion of the
community. I am happy to have pointed out this issue, at the least. :)

Currently, jbovlaste will accept data for 70 languages.
