OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.2. The OpenBSD 5.2 release page has a detailed list of all changes and improvements. As always, I would love for someone to write proper items about OpenBSD releases - it's outside my interests and cursory glances don't do it justice.

PPS. Overall, why specifically not Finno-Ugric?...

Because for some reason which only linguists likely understand, this family of languages looks very different from everything else I have toyed with in at some point in my short life (French, English, German, Arabic, Swedish and Japanese), so learning one of them would likely be especially difficult.

They're not alone, of course, I've heard from Russian learners that it gets be pretty bad too and my short experience with literary Arabic tells me that I probably wouldn't want an Arabic PL either. It's just that I had to pick something for the sentence to remain clean. ;)

I want to create a Scottish dialect of C.

I'll call it:

Expletive-C.

When computers are finally able to effortlessly process natural language, perhaps we'll finally see the dawn of the ultimate debugging nightmare: Subjective-C ;)

Well... I suppose it's major benefit will at least be efficiency, running on very economic (cheap...) hardware? Smart dust and such (hopefully without constant quiet hum of expletives?)

Wasn't Japanese (generally Far East) language moderately related to Finno-Ugric group? (or at least, wasn't that one of many hypotheses?)

If you think Russian is bad, then Polish would be also "fun" I suppose ;p (and it also has some programming languages, though less than Russian & less serious)
