i long ago meant to ask about this.  the file common/en.xml has a fairly 
adamant warning at the top that that file is auto-generated and shouldn't
be messed with.

under the circumstances, how does one *properly* override the current
hyphenation character of "#" with something more reasonable.  you know,
like, oh, i don't know ... "-" ? :-)

i mean, it's not a param, it's not a template, i'm not sure *what* one
is supposed to do, short of the above, which is just edit the file.
