As often happens, some of the questions asked during my previous
thread got lost in the noise, so I repeat them here as I am quite
keen to get answers :

> 0) [Context: Hebrew] So all that we need is LHM=3, RHM=3, and 
> patterns that permit hyphenation between all possible pairs of Hebrew
> characters that represent letters; should I therefore move this part
> of the discussion to the TeX-Hyphen list ?

> 1) If a user installs TeX Live 2013 specifying
>	Collections: all; packages: all; schemes: all
> how does he or she ask the system for which languages
> \lang@<language> is defined ?

> 2) I would like to be able to install full support for Plain TeX (all
> languages, all fonts, etc), but zero support for other formats.  What
> is the correct combination of Collections/packages/schemes to
> accomplish this, please ? 

> 3) Given that I am processing 16th-C polytonic Greek, should I be 
> using \uselanguage {ancientgreek} rather than \uselanguage {greek}, 
> and if so, is it possible to summarise the difference(s) between
> the two sets of patterns ?
