[Lingo] JMdict/EDICT and adjectives

[A bit OT for TLUG, but I know a few developers read this,so ....]

I want alert people to a change being made soon to the
part-of-speech codes in EDICT/JMdict for the various forms
of adjectives.

The changes are:

- for "regular" 形容詞, the code will switch from "adj" to

- the use of "adj-pn" will be restricted to recognized
連体詞 (有らゆる, etc.)

- existing adj-na/adj-no/adj-t codes will stay unchanged

- all other entries currently marked  adj/adj-pn will
be changed to "adj-f" (adjectival form)

It will take a little while to roll this out, but I want to spread
the word widely, as quite a lot of software detects and acts on
those codes.
