Fine with me. I found the current translisterations on the net. I think 
that it uses upper cases letters to distinct two letter transliterations.


now: HE => Ha / HET ALEF => HA

Hard to say. If it feels broken in Hebrew it's a bug, but OTOH someone may 
not find files any more if the transliteration is done at runtime. Do we 
have many Hebrew installations?
