In 90% it would be used for loadhyhp-XX.tex, it used to be used in
language.XX.dat, but at this moment you might indeed not need it any

But some other question - it would be nice to know what to put to
those tlpsrc files apart from the execute line.

Apart from that, I have no idea where to take the hyphmin settings
from for Hungarian, Greek, Polish, Coptic and Turkish at least. Not
100% sure whether I got them right for other languages.
