Hello all,

I just came across this library:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/hunspell/files/Hyphen/

Which seems to be the last iteration of libhj, and is currently used by
OpenOffice/LibreOffice. It seems to have some interesting feature over
the original hyphenation algorithm, namely support for "non-standard
hyphenation; `discretionary' character changes at hyphenation points"
and "compound word hyphenation and special rules of compound word
hyphenation of German languages and other languages with arbitrary
number of compound words." I recall reading about something related to
German hyphenation planned for luatex, so I sought this might be of some
interest here.

Regards,
 Khaled
