[XeTeX] Greek hyphenation in xetex

On CTAN I find the package xetex-greek, which looks like what I should 
be using since I typeset everything with xe(la)tex.

MiKTeX 2.7 provides some hyphenation options for Greek, including 
ancient (see screen shot attached).  I am guessing that these are older 
tools for plain LaTeX, not Xe(La)TeX, perhaps for use with Babel.  And, 
in fact, the log file for a recent document tells me that:

Babel <v3.8l> and hyphenation patterns for english, dumylang, 
nohyphenation, german, ngerman, german-x-2008-06-18, 
ngerman-x-2008-06-18, french, ancientgreek, latin, loaded.

This is a bit of a puzzle since the preamble loads polyglossia, not babel.

Can somebody clarify this?  I've been doing Greek poetry recently but 
will be doing some prose and will need hyphenation.  And how do I 
activate the patterns in xetex-greek, if that's what I need (although 
perhaps I need to ask that on a MiKTeX list).

Thanks - David
