I take it you've thrown up your hands in horror at the merry chaos which
has broken out at ACollaborativeConlang and decided to try to create
something saner? I noticed a comment along the lines of "We don't want
anything mad like  nominative/accusative in the present tense and
ergative/absolute in the past", which is precisely what
ACollaborativeConlang has (I believe that the linguistic term for this is
"split-S"). Good luck, but feel free to come and play with the anarchists
at any time.
