a simple file hyphen.cfg _could_ be difficult. (we disallow things on
the basis of what would go on in the "simple mind" if they saw it, but
we already have

2005/05/08 | 5630 | systems/omega/contrib/antomega/omega/lambda/antomega/hyphen.cfg
so we would need to temper our disapproval ;-)
put it on macros/luatex (or whatever the dir is) would improve the situation.
disguise it in (say) a .dtx file luatex_hyphen.dtx would be ideal.
