Czech, Polish, and Slovak topographies have mandatory rules on non breaking spaces. (The module was created by a Czeck contributor IIRC).
These rules are probably not so strict in other languages.

The module is easily hackable, though you need the source, and build from source to implement a revised shortwords plugin.

Just looking at this brand new Ubuntu-7.04 installation, I see there is no source code for it ( 27 Feb) so I would have to get it if I wanted to play with the shortwords module.
