yes, definitely, the two should be merged. I worked through all
deviations, and I think our implementation is correct (wrt the algorithm
description, which may be wrong too).

I have not found the original paper, which is a pity, and all the
algorithm descriptions I have found so far vary a bit. But in the end,
it's a phonetic code to match similar names and when I compare to
dropby, I feel more comfortable with our implementation (e.g. take PHIL
and FIL which result in FFAL and FAL in dropby, which is weird).

Anyway, the modified version seems to address some of these things, so
it may be a good idea to additionally implement this one.
