Thanks. I applied the patch almost completely. I left out the part that 
touched configure.ac (-Wno-deprecated) and changed the copyright notices from 
the new files to have your name in them, not mine.

I did not test this yet at all. It seems that the suggestion generator was not 
added to SuggestionGeneratorFactory.cpp so it would not work out of the box. I 
can fix this once I have time to test it, probably at the end of this week. 
Same problem with hyphenator, I'll fix that too.

The original patterns appear to be from Kauko Saarinen. I believe they are in 
public domain although the history of these patterns (especially the hyph-utf8 
version) is really confusing:
