Can you give me some examples of this? Do you mean there are patterns  
that really involve double-quote characters, or that some of the  
existing patterns are written using (non-Unicode) input conventions  
that involve the " character? If that's the case, this should be  
handled by converting the sequences to the correct Unicode characters  
for the language in question (e.g., by defining macros that map the "- 
letter combinations to Unicode letters).

Remember that for XeTeX, the hyphenation patterns are to be defined  
in terms of Unicode characters, not 8-bit (La|Con)TeX(t) legacy input
