  You’re making it impossible to help you.  Whatever anyone says, you
dismiss it with various excuses: you already knew that, you read the
email but needed half a year to tell it wasn’t useful, you want to have
the discussion in another forum.  Right now it’s imaginary users that
prop your demand for a different solution because it “isn’t about
yourself or your documents” -- even though it clearly is.  No one else
here has expressed interest in what you’re asking for.

  There’s worse, though.  Your original request revealed that some
consonant pairs could be treated differently when hyphenating Ancient
Greek.  Which are they?  Determining that was clearly on you, and would
have brought at least a modicum of substance to the discussion.  Having
however more or less lost hope that you ever will, I did that job myself
and now think that

	βμ βν γμ θμ πμ τν φμ χμ

are the only consonant pairs that require a different treatment.  Would
you please confirm?
