ruhyph16.tex is provided by antomega. You can't include this file
into the default languages.dat for lambda/lamed, if you 

-- want to turn antomega into a separate format;
-- don't like to create a 'generic' directory for 16-bit hyphenation

On the other hand, the default version of ruhyph.tex (which is
adapted to the T2* encodings) is surely not very usable with omega,
so I don't know why it was listed in languages.dat for lambda.

Well, there were already so many random fixes previously, that due
to these fixes omega currenly looks even less usable than John and
Yannis had left it. So I think more fixes are needed just to correct
some results of the previous fixes :) And I would be glad to take
care of omega setup, if nobody else is interested.
