Do you have a list of Asturian words and their hyphenation points?  Do
you hyphenate between two syllables?  Or do you hyphenate based on the
etymology of the word?

Also, I think OpenOffice.org uses the same hyphenation algorithm as
TeX, so if they have Asturian hyphenation patterns, we may be able to
use them.
