It certainly is, and very news worthy with the "Hobbitlike" discription.

SE Asia is a mysterious place, one of my lecturers had been told of a unknown scrip in a cave in West Timour, lucky for the world Indonesian Islam is generally more tolerent of difference.

A freind of mine at Uni had to write an essay on a small tool culture, we all had a big laugh about it, her soulution was a small people, and don't I just feel a little silly now! :D

I found out about it today because my AP Bio teacher told us about it.
