I see. How about if I take one of the current 'openoffice.org-dictionaries' 
packages, mutilate it into a '-fi' one and upload it by myself? It's just 
one .dic file, though, nothing more.

My main concern is that the package may go out of sync with 
'openoffice.org-dictionaries' but perhaps it is a sensible temporary solution 
if we also attempt to get hyph_fi_FI accepted into the upstream source tree?

Chris, do you know what it takes to get a contributed dictionary accepted? I 
suppose simply filing a wishlist bug won't do because of SUN's strict 
copyright policy, even though the dictionary places no restrictions to usage 
or distribution. Try and get all the original authors to sign a copyright 
assignment form? (Could prove to be very hard if not impossible as the 
dictionary is originally from the 80's.)
