  Good.  Now consider the following use case: someone wants to typeset
speeches by Cato the Elder, using the classical spelling convention of
course, but that user doesn't like the patterns you devised for
Classical Latin, they want to use the other ones that produce phonetic
breaks (they're great fans of Pope John XXIII and want to use the
post-Vatican II conventions).  They also know how to switch between
hyphenation patterns and are aware that there might be some minor issues
due to the u/v distinction that the modern patterns make.

  Conversely, let's assume someone else wants to typeset a collection of
Papal bulls in modern Latin, making the u/v distinction, but they've
made the stylistic choice to actually use the patterns that break
according to etymology (they adhere strictly to Vatican I).  They're
also aware of the underlying technical issues and are ready to solve
them as they encounter them.

  Obviously, these use cases are not perfectly supported by the current
setup and users making the choices described in the above two paragraphs
should keep in mind that they may run into some problems.  With that in
mind, wouldn't you agree that these are nevertheless reasonable use
