[Dev-luatex] generalized hyphenation

i noticed the extension to the allowed syntax inside \hyphenation
which made it possible to use arbitrary discretionaries in the
\hyphenation list (using the {pre-}{post}{normal} syntax)
instead of just the most common {-}{}{} discretionary.

some languages need a lot of discretionaries for proper hyphenation, and
allowing to specify whole-word exceptions with arbitary discretionaries
is already a good step forward, but i wonder if you plan to extend the
\patterns mechanism to support arbitrary discretionaries too?
