Esperanto can be exapted...

When people are inclined to dis something, a good thing for them to remember is that it might have some good use unrelated to the originally-stated use. Such unrealted use is called "exaptation". I've mentioned "exaptation" in my blog here before, but here is the link again for your convenience:
"A grasping foot is present in the closest relatives of birds, but also in the earliest birds like Archaeopteryx.
"We suggest that this originally evolved for predation, but would also have been available for use in perching. This is what we call 'exaptation:' a structure evolved originally for one purpose that can later be appropriated for a different use," Fowler said.
“the appropriation of a structure originally evolved for one purpose for a different use”
Also, here's the link to the Wikipedia article on exaptation:
