Yes, of course.  I wrote the above in response to your suggestion to
leave just one function.

If both functions attempt to produce the same behavior, then yes, we
need only one.  But then wouldn't we need a second one, to produce the
behavior expected, say, in US English?

I didn't mean Polish, I meant in general languages where the
conventions are different.  Surely, there are some, and tildify
explicitly assumes that.
