Well, "exclusive" and "inclusive" pronouns in natlangs don't (AFAIK) generally extend beyond: 1st person inclusive: me/we and you 1st person exclusive: me and him/her/it/them/us (but not you) I always wanted to put in an "exclusive you" for "present company excepted" situations. (i.e., 'you as a group, but not you as an individual')... but that'd be a little much, I think. *Muke!
