Ah, you are right, I have not checked that yet.  So it would be
necessary to state the history of icelandic.el in case we have to
recreate danish.el at one point from scratch.

I see in ChangeLog.old

1997-03-13  Per Abrahamsen  <address@hidden>

        * style/danish.el: Copied from `style/dk.el'.
        * Makefile (STYLESRC): Added `style/danish.el'.
        Suggested by Lars Frellesen <address@hidden>.

No further information I can find.  dk.el has been checked into CVS by
"amanda" in 1993.  I'd guess that this was Per's account name.

And dk.el is, by itself, ridiculously content-free (just calls a
language hook), in spite of being unchanged since version 1.1 which
has "lots of changes" in its log entry.

I don't think that rewriting icelandic.el without looking at danish.el
is going to buy us anything.
