Following up Suzanne's recent link (thanks!) to Pinyin news, I deleted the
tail of the URL to see what
would yield, and under the dateline Sept. 24th, I read about Peter
Boodberg; very interesting fellow. In a tribute to him, I noted this:

"One of his long-term interests was a bold attempt to establish a complex
of Western graphic symbols to represent each of the 30,000 characters of
the classical Chinese script."
