Heterorganic clusters after my own heart. To give you an idea of my personal flavor, here are mine:

/mn mŋ mt mk ms mx mɣ ml mr/
/nm nŋ np nk nɸ nx nβ nɣ/
/ŋm ŋn ŋp ŋt ŋɸ ŋβ ŋs ŋl ŋr/
/pn pŋ pt pk ps px pl pr pɣ/
/tm tŋ tp tk tɸ tx tβ tɣ/
/km kn kp kt kɸ ks kβ kl kr/
/ɸn ɸŋ ɸt ɸk/
/sm sŋ sp sk/
/xm xn xp xt/
/βn βŋ βt βk βs βx βl βr/
/ɣm ɣn ɣp ɣt ɣɸ ɣs ɣl ɣr/
/lm lŋ lp lk lɸ lx lβ lɣ/
/rm rŋ rp rk rɸ rx rβ rɣ/

Going forward, there is a lot of metathesis, lenition, and fortition, merging clusters.

Not only would this fit into our project well, but borrowings from this proto-lang and its descendants into other languages would do all sorts of interesting things with all those unusual consonant clusters!
