We got rid of that - it contained all sorts of hard-coded corner cases  
and didn't seem like the sort of code we wanted people to rely on. A  
more configurable version might be a useful endeavour, although it  
could end up like Ruby on Rail's pluralize function with a massive  
array of special cases.
