[tex-hyphen] loading two different hyphenation patterns by default

Hi there,

I have this sample file:

\setmainfont{Theano Didot}
Default hyphenation is English (fine for me).
I need to hyphenate χαλεπὰ τὰ καλά (ancient Greek also).

LuaTeX can load two hyphenation patterns for the same text. This leads
to errors when typesetting languages that use the same script. But it is
extremely useful with languages that have different scripts.

How could I load US English hyphenation patterns and ancient Greek
hyphenation patterns in the example above? (ConTeXt has
"\setuplanguage[en][patterns=en,agr]", but I have no idea how to do that
in Lua(La)TeX.)

Many thanks for your help,
