The first idea about the technical solution can't be the best.
I am ready to add the one line macro code into czhyphen.tex, skhyphen.tex
in order to these files can be included from everywhere: from babelised
LaTeX, from csplain, cslatex and from babelised plain. We leave these
files in its historical place: texmf/tex/csplain and remove its
duplicates: czhyph.tex and skhyph.tex. Only the following change in
the babel's language.dat should be done:
czhyph.tex -> czhyphen.tex
skhyph.tex -> skhyphen.tex
I will add this one line macro code after the pdfTeX base format
downgrades to its historical original meaning. I am waiting for removing
the path from pdftex.ini, it means to removing babel from pdftex format.
You can name the babelised plain by another name.
