On the other hand, with so many useful guides to Welsh pronunciation easily found on the internet already, to what extent would it be worth the effort of developing another one just for this course?

Once more in Cymraeg, please, sung to the tune of It's Not Unusual! ;o) Actually, it's the spelling of these Celtic tongues in the Anglo-Roman script that throws me off ... perhaps they could use diacritical marks of some kind ... I'm just sayin' ...

They both do use diacritics.

Oops, now I remember, but if I can get a witness, maybe they need their own unique forms (à la Vietnamese, for example).

While that would be interesting (and Irish did once have its own alphabet) they both work perfectly well with their current systems and have done for a very long time. Were they to change it, replacing signage and computer software and books alongside educating people in a new script or system of diacritics would cost a fortune and not at all be worthwhile. However, I think it should be done :)
