The only thing I can contribute to it is that the API supports this (it
is called alternative spelling). See
http://api.openoffice.org/docs/common/ref/com/sun/star/linguistic2/XHyphenatedWord.html
It worked previously in StarOffice with the 'old' German spelling...

The implementation of the OOo hyphenator does not make use of
alternative spellings right now though.

Thomas, all,
The implementation of OOO2.2 on Windows carries the stand alone hyphenator
which DOES support at least part of the functionality.

I made a more recent post about that, notifying one example works, another
does not.
