Bug Description

It would be handy to have the openoffice.org-hyphenation source package build separate hyphen-* binaries for the remaining hyphenation dictionaries. That way, if/when a dictionary for one of the languages is added to libreoffice-dictionaries, we won't need to worry about conflicts. Also, openoffice.org-hyphenation can be dropped from pkg_depends in language-selector, so pkg_depends doesn't keep pulling e.g. Finnish and Indonesian hyphenation for all users.

@Mattia: Do you think this measure makes sense?

Yep, I think it makes a lot of sense.
It would make transition towards dicts provided by lo-dicts a lot easier indeed, and there are only gains.

Please go ahead with this (and tell me if you need a sponsor, I can provide one).

Thanks for your comment, Mattia. I put it in the sponsor queue <http://reqorts.qa.ubuntu.com/reports/sponsoring/>, but the queue is long, so if you know of someone who is eager to help out, be my guest.
