How in hell did the term pitlatrine get in there 1500 times? A weird
construction of a multi-word term IMO. If anything it should be
pit_latrine. As far as that goes, the tag toilet:disposal seems, to this
reader at least, to indicate a place to discard toilets and be limited to
the values yes or no. Are the people who dream up these tags speaking
English?
