with regards to the words it thought about, it thought exactly the
same way as TeX would; it uses TeX patterns and the TeX algorithm for
hyphenation. And generally puts less hyphens in a text of this width
than TeX does.

If you think that particular words are not hyphenated correctly, add
them to the list of exceptions in the pattern file.
