It would be better to put it in Babel but it can be used even without
modifying the core files, it will only be missing from Babel

In fact, hindi.dtx is a source for hindi.ldf which is being generated
during Babel installation. In order tomake it work babel.ins must be
modified. Hoewver, it is possible to just generate it separately and put
it under tex/generic/babel/... because all Babel files reside there.

Addition to language.dat is the easiest thing. There are no hyphenation
patters, therefore zerohyph.tex is used and the line is simple.
