We've seen three of the four rovers used as suffixes on adjectival 
verbs. *-qu'* appears in /The Klingon Dictionary/ (section 4.4) and is 
explicitly allowed. *-be'* first appears in /Conversational Klingon/ in 
the section on counting as *wa'maH yIHmey lI'be'.* *-Ha'* first appears 
in /Klingon for the Galactic Traveler/ as *Duj ngaDHa'* in the section 
on slang. Each type has been used more than once.

Clearly, *-qu', -be',* and *-Ha'* are all allowed on adjectival verbs. I 
don't think we've ever seen any other suffixes on such verbs.
