After a discussion about this with Itai Zukerman, i came to sort of agree
with this, althought this might be a design issue, in finnish atleast it's
not that much easier to pronounce 'oo' than any other two letter squence.

I think that the person who reported the bug, wasn't english and didn't
see a point here. (i can see the point but makes no difference to me)

maybe this should be an option... this might be good to be downgraded
to wishlist and add a comment to make this optional.
