  Thanks for the examples.  I'd like to point out that while most of the
incorrect ones are indeed flat out wrong, some of them are border cases:
for example

> --------------------------------------
>   српско		incorrect
>   srp-sko		correct
> --------------------------------------

is only incorrect in that it doesn't find all the breakpoints in the
Cyrillic version; but it doesn't insert wrong ones (all the ones it
finds are right -- OK, it's 0 in that case ;-)

  This one:

> --------------------------------------
>   на-сто-ја-тељ		correct
>   na-sto-ja-te-lj	incorrect
> --------------------------------------

may be a different issue: it might be that the Latin patterns have been
generated from patgen with a value of \righthyphenmin greater than 2
(strictly); in that case setting \righthyphenmin to 1 or 2 would simply
produce wrong results.

  Other than that, it strikes me that many of the incorrect breakpoints
involve the liquid consonants 'l' and 'r'.
