I suspect I could get a similar group to agree that all programming
should be done in ALGOL, too. Feed a well-done seminar to the right
people who aren't well-educated in the subject, and you'll get
whatever results you want from the survey.

Naena Guru doesn't care. In fact, Naena Guru's seminar contributed to
that feeling before the survey. Without the input of some Sinhala user
that doesn't have an ax to grind, there's not much that can be done.
