Yes! That site was just recently announced; I bookmarked it but it slipped
my mind.....Clearly the most up to date listing.  He mentions Gonda here and
there, and IIRC he (or his source, de Casparis) questions a few of Gonda's
attributions, and _maybe_ finds a few new ones.
I haven't gone through the whole list yet, but need to, as I know of one or
two loanwords in "minor" Indo. languages that aren't found in modern Ml. or
Javanese (at least not in the dictionaries)...
