As I have tried to outline in an earlier mail, my conflict resolution
strategy requires putting the pattern sets into a ranking by priority.
The actual strategy looks like this:
* At each hyphenation position apply the penalty from that matching
pattern set, that has highest priority. Here's some pseudo code:
loop (over pattern sets in priority order)
if (pattern set matches a hyphenation) then
penalty = penalty[pattern set]
apply penalty to hyphenation
