What's an "onomasticon"...??

There's one on the GoGoD cd, and it may just be the coolest toy on there, if it weren't for all the serious "Games of Go throughout History" bits...

Looking up (Yi Ch'ang Ho)...

Enter the first character (if you know it) from the lookup table, then hit the Search button. But direct, native input from the keyboard using a utility like Anthy (Ubuntu's SCIM for 日本語) won't work.

It's like a visit from Humpty Dumpty. "It's name is John Fairbairn's Dictionary Suite 1.4. But what it's called is onomasticon.exe, and that is a list of names." Yes, Virginia, being English is congenital.
