	Viser'd be closer. The "ij" in Dutch is the German "ei," so the long "i"
sound is correct. The doubleyou would be pronounced as a vee, though. Of
course, when it comes to Wolfe, you never know, so we'd have to think about
it, and maybe get into a BIG argument here over whether Wijzer is
far-seeing (Visor) or insightful (Wiser).
