Itakian not only has singular and plural pronouns (with an inclusive-exclusive
distinction in plural), but also paucal pronouns, often having the sense
of "just the ones in sight", or "just the ones we're talking about". So it
doesn't exactly make the same distinction but the first paucal inclusive
happens to be used a lot for "you and I", and the exclusive for "he/she/they
and I".
