I've been meaning to do that for a while actually (I flagged it first
time around), but haven't yet got around to it. I'll happily include
any contributions in xltxtra, but if you all are happy to wait it'll
turn up eventually.

I even yesterday ran into a \printhyphens command by you, Jonathan,
that looks quite nice :)

Yep, that's what's happening.
