This is mainly directed at the Swedes on this list...

Which of of the notations 2\ Y\ 8\ would
you find most convenient/intuitive for the
Swedish "long _u_", which in strict
X-SAMPA is [2_w]?

I'm also mulling on which available Unicode
character to use for this sound.  While it
would be reasonably easy to fake Y\ as
Latin Letter Small Capital Y Bar with the
help of a combining diacritic I'm nevertheless
leaning towards using lowercase Greek omega, as
being most similar to the symbol for this sound
in Svenska Landsmålsalfabetet -- essentially an
M\ with a short middle leg.
