sagehen adds WHO to WHOA and exclamatory WHY.  but WHO(M)/WHOSE
all have initial h, not w, so they're not involved in the
relationships we've been talking about.

dInIs adds (for him) WHORF and WHARF.  both of these can have
initial voiceless consonants for me.  but i'd certainly expect
plenty of words to have moved into the voiced-only set for
other speakers; after all, i have voiced initials as possible
variants for all the voiceless-initial words.
