This is an issue we're going to need to address anyhow, down the
road. Is the Scribus Team in contact with OO.o devels as well? Let's
face it: we will never ever get a hyphenation engine to achieve
"perfect" hyphenation... (also considering the number of languages).
There is a need for such a tool like "hyphenation exception". At the
same time, there must also be a way to make the hyphenation engine to
work better (in OO.o and in Scribus and anywhere else) without the
help of the "exceptions". What I am saying is we have to work on both
ends. It's clumsy, like in Quark, if we have to deal with so many
exceptions that the list becomes endless.
Only a few thoughts.
