The other question... I understand there's a degree of mutual
intelligibility between various sign languages, usually at the simpler
end of things, but varying heavily by language and various factors;
and that signwriting can (at least in theory) represent pretty much
any sign language. Is this an ASL-specific sign, or would it be
understood by, say, an NZSL or BSL reader?

We probably want to make sure we don't accidentally put up the symbol
for "lies" in another sign language ;-)
