This should be double-checked because there are subtleties like
Esperanto not being in sarge, but being in woody

I seem to remember something about Croatian, also.

Also, the exact number for sarge should be double-checked, indeed. I
remember about 41, not 40.....but I can't tell you why the languages
status page says only 40..:-)
