SignPuddle database design options

 From a programming standpoint, it looks like we need to be able to 
group several SignWriting entries under one lexeme.  The easiest way I 
can think of is create a Lexeme entry, then tag each related SignWriting 
entry with that lexeme entry.  Then it would be possible to print out a 
dictionary with SignWriting entries grouped by lexeme.
