In case anybody is reading this, patterns have to have not only one
weight attribute, but two attributes:
* a priority that solves conflicts (fighting pattern sets),
* a weight (or a demerit in case of TeX) that is to be associated
with a potential hyphenation point to steers the paragraph breaking
algorithm towards more legible paragraph breaks.
So undesirable patterns would have
* a very high priority to always take effect,
* a very low weight (hight demerit) to avoid/forbid that
