In the case of Greek hyphenation, by making as many copies of the
patterns containing an oxia-tonos as is necessary. That's very
pedestrian, but works; it's done by a script, of course.
okay. then there *are* two entries for
every possibility (although only the
ones with oxia would be needed for
"properly encoded" classical greek).

Well, the authoritative data is UnicodeData.txt, and it's just as easy
to parse (easier, in fact), so that's what should be used. Do you have
a pointer to the discussion?
i've had it bookmarked for over a week,
ever since i got an inquiry regarding
the source of several symbols in the
"miscellaneous symbols" block. i'll
go back and reread the discussion.
