  I think the Germans have such rules, that's why they want a framework
to implement them :-)  Even my Wahrig shows hyphenation points for each
of its entries, so I guess you could find a specialized dictionary that
indicates weights for each of the possible breaking places (in any case,
I understood from the discussion initiated by David I hinted at earlier
that such dictionaries actually exist)

  Very much so.  But let's worry about that later... ;-)
