because hyphenation patterns are rather messy (often latex specific and encoding specific) we need to generalize them first 

take a look at ctxtools and search for pattern 

we need to: 

- add russian and ukrainian to the to be processed lost
- make sure that we convert patterns to names chars and/or utf 

after that, we can make generic patterns and support of teh languages mentioned should work 

we can do this off list (or at the context dev list)  

- which are the pattern files that we need to look into to
