Personally, I think that "they" should always take a plural
verb. Other languages that use pronouns interchangeably as
either singular or plural, depending on the context, always
conjugate the verb in the plural. E.g. "Vous" in French is
always conjugated the same way (root + "ez", e.g. "chantez"),
The only change I think likely with singular "they" is the
development of the reflexive "themself" (versus "themselves"
in the plural), parallel to "yourself".
