I want to keep this to babelfish (bable.altavista.com) not others, for 
consistency. If you can repeat "the fire is angry" on there then that one.

I noticed in one of finnw's tests that the "^I$","spirit of I" conversion 
was returning "SPIRIT OF I" (presumably as its just preserving the case of 
the original). If there is a way to set this one to use lowercase as above 
always, then can someone implement it (with a comment).

When someone has time, we could run through some common abbreviations for 
peoples names as well, e.g. ff <firefury>, sf <stringfellow>, cmc 
<cmckenna>, art <arthur>, wb <Welshbyte>, vort <vortex>, etc. (Dom 
<psycodom> already translates to "cathederal"). 
Don't do anything offensive, and if someone asks for one related to them 
to be removed, do it (unless its spurious), an example is Manic does NOT 
want his username translating to "maniac".
