I really doubt he will be adding words and I got the distinct impression
that he was talking about re-formating the data (thus my initial reply).
As noted if that is the case (and I think it is for what its worth) then
there are no issues (per Elzubeir's confirmation) - but this needs to be
noted to him.

Salam and I'm looking forward to seeing _yet_ another site using our
beloved Wordlist (did I say this thing is USEFUL or what :-)

Keep up the great work !!
