"STILL_ENGLISH" is a token, to make it easy to find such problems with a
tool like `grep`.  I don't happen to have a `grep` tool that can
distinguish one human language from another, unless the author tags it.

You know, connectivity keeps getting better and cheaper around the
world.  I certainly had less trouble with bandwidth than you when I was
traveling in the former USSR -- using one Soviet-style ISP in Moscow,

in Tallinn.  Surely your university will be able to afford decent
connectivity some time soon.
