OK, will do.

(being able to add hyphenation exception to the actual FOP hyphenation system at runtime)
and send a pull request - if I manage to find a solution that seems to be general enough to
serve other people, too.

patterns - containing the exceptions, so this could be done on-the-fly. As I understand, this
is now part of the build process of FOP.

If you haven’t already found it, be sure to have a look at class org.apache.fop.SerializeHyphPattern,
which is used for that purpose during the build process. The class is part of the regular
source tree, so should be easy to locate.

Be aware though, that since this file is normally used during the build process, there are
no guarantees that it is safe and fit for use in a web container context… If you experience
issues in your attempts, be sure to post to fop-dev@.

Hope this helps!
