 SERA Based Ethiopic Input Methods
Intelligence is used during a Ge'ez numeral composition to allow Ge'ez numerals to be entered using the more familair logic of western numerals (An article with a sample algorithm is here).
In a partial Ge'ez environment where we might have an English keyboard and an Ge'ez editor or keyboard driver, the keyboard aspects of SERA become relevant again and we may want to consider the optimizations that we refrained from earlier.
Like the "Ge'ez Space Mode" a mode to set the Ge'ez digits as the default when the digits are entered from the keyboard.

 Ethiopic syllabic script for Amharic
The Ethiopic script developed from the script of Ethiopia's classical language, Ge'ez, which was derived from the Sabaean/Minean script.
The script used to write Ge'ez has been in use since at least the 4th century AD.
These numerals developed from the Greek alphabet, possibly via Coptic.

 The Tigrinya Writing System
It is a slight variant of the writing system used for Amharic and for Ge'ez [gɨʔɨz], the classical language still in use as the liturgical language of Ethiopian and Eritrean Orthodox Christians.
These are no longer in common use in Eritrea, where they have been replaced by the ``Arabic'' numerals, that is, the same ones used in English.
The literature on Tigrinya suggests that this vowel is always epenthetic, so the sixth order simply represents the consonant by itself.

 A Look at Ethiopic Numerals
It is all the more curious that in numerology tables (another subject!) using the Ge'ez syllabary in the Unicode like `ሀለሐ' ordering, Omicron and Ayne are the only two that remain aligned!
While this may be no more than mere coincidence it is probable that Copts, Greeks and Ethiopians were making an effort to syncronize the numeric values assigned to letters with the equivalent letters and values used in the Hebrew ``Gematria'' practice.
These adjustments helped create the "Omicron-Ayne Axis" at number 70 where the two circular glyphs curiously line up.
