While I like 'e' much, much better, this does not appear to be
Personally, I find a mixture of the old and new Spivaks to be most
desirable: E/Em/Eir/Eirs/Emself. However, if forced to choose between one of
the predefined sets, I would go with the old one (E/Em/Eir/Eirs/Eirself)
rather than the new (Ey/Em/Eir/Emself). If we are going to use these, it
might be nice to standardize one way or the other. What do people think?
