Hi Charles -
Yes, you are right, that all of those handshapes need to be inserted
into the SSS. I have around 50 other handshapes people have requested

fingers combined with different base shapes there are...the human
hand is really quite flexible!
So the SSS will become a very long list by the time we are done...
