Well, as for vowels the ol' /i a u/ has something going for it!
:-)  Proto-Sohlob (aka Kidjeb) actually has that system.  Sohlob itself has

      /i   1   u/     {i   e   u}
      /e   a   o/     {ae  a   o}

which I find beautiful, especially as it is in Sohlob combined with vowel
height harmony (i.e. all vowels of a word are either all high or all low).

As for consonants I don't know.
