No, I'm going to ask him if he could release it into the Public Domain. That
way he wouldn't have have to sign SUN's copyright assignment form and the
dictionary could still be included officially into OOo.

He changed nothing. Saarinen read his article about automatic hyphenation of
Finnish and wrote the TeX rules according to ideas presented in it.

I think professor Koskenniemi would be a better choice for various reasons but
I'll write more about it later on the fennic-spellchecker list.
