Great, thanks a lot Hans. Not a big issue (some glues are bit more stretched 
than before here and there, but not to the point to have underfulls), but 
curious to understand.
Best regards

Joseph

When messing with disc nodes one can argue if some of then need to 
become discretionary nodes or keep their other type. This change keeps 
it more original (of course one can  argue about it) which has some 
consequence for the number of passes that tex makes (pass without 
hyphenation, pass with hyphenation, pass with hyphenation and stretch)

i plan to makes things a bit more configureable in the alternative 
hyphenator

one can also argue that the first pass can be omitted (i.e. always go 
for the best solution)
