I guess you are right, Eli - in fact, all one-letter words in Polish are
matched by [aiouwz].  I decided to go with \cl, as you suggested,
though - this way, the function could be (probably) useful also for
Slovaks, for instance.  I attach the corrected patch.

Just to be sure: in my Emacs, \cl matches also ą, ę, ż, ź, á, ö etc.  Is
it intentional?  Is it documented somewhere?

Thanks and best regards,
