Well, citing from it, it ain't so easy:
(La)TeX does not hyphenate words that already contain explicit hyphen
characters (except just after the hyphen), ...

To enable hyphenation despite this, a command of the form:
"moves" the hyphen char away from "-" and thus enables hyphenation
also at additional places.

Sorry, no examples and no time to learn the build system to see if
this is a viable option.
