I know one of our fellow conlangers, Justin B Rye, have composed a
such sentence for his accent. Have a look at here:
Are those shy Eurasian footwear, cowboy chaps, or jolly earthmoving headgear?

I further see no reason for any of us to dispute Daniel's word (3) that the
distinction is realized in his 'lect solely by length. In those
circumstances, his choice of symbols is perfectly reasonable for a phonemic
analysis of his 'lect, and as that's all he was offering, the thread can now
descend into violent agreement. :)
