Sorry John, I didn't realise you needed to be CC'd on replies, it looks
like someone dropped you off at some point.  I later suggested to Colin
redefining the `hyphenation on' command so it does nothing.

That way, you turn it off with the echo, define the `turn on' command to
do nothing, and if the man page attempts to turn it on itself it won't
