I have long wondered why it is so common in automated translations,
that a common word (such as "of") can be translated one way, but
that translation is missing from the reverse.  (Granted, in this case it
was a loop translation, but that's a common enough word that its
equivalent should have been in all six of E->F, F->E, E->G, G->E,
F->G, and G->F.)
