Question concerning hyphenation patch

So, this is really just a minor question concerning the default settings of the hyphenation patch.

Should the default (minimal) "first syllable length" and "last syllable length" settings be left at 3 characters, or reduced to 2 characters? For most of the languages that I know, allowing two-character first syllables seems to make sense ("un-", "in-", "im-" prefixes), not sure about suffixes though (I tend to think that allowing for 2 characters also makes more sense for suffixes in most languages, but as said I'm not sure).

Keep in mind that these default settings are language-agnostic - so, what works in most (but possibly not all) languages should be the default. And of course, the setting can be changed according to individual preference anytime - I'm just asking what would be sensible defaults.

Thanks for your input!
