CTAN has a new package: Hyphenation Patterns in UTF-8
Native UTF-8 engines such as XeTeX and LuaTeX have urged the need to provide hyphenation patterns in UTF-8 format. These patterns should replace the old ones eventually. This is the first upload to CTAN that will enable testing for TeX Live 2008 and is not yet set in stone. In particular we still want to change all the copyright notes in patterns, and add some documentation. SVN repository is available on http://www.tug.org/svn/texhyphen. Bug reports and feature requests welcome.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/language/hyph-utf8 . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/hyph-utf8 (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

hyph-utf8 – Hyphenation patterns expressed in UTF-8
Modern native UTF-8 engines such as XeTeX and LuaTeX need hyphenation patterns in UTF-8 format, whereas older systems require hyphenation patterns in the 8-bit encoding of the font in use (such encodings are codified in the LaTeX scheme with names like OT1, T2A, TS1, OML, LY1, etc).
The present package offers a collection of conversions of existing patterns to UTF-8 format, together with converters for use with 8-bit fonts in older systems. Since hyphenation patterns for Knuthian-style TeX systems are only read at iniTeX time, it is hoped that the UTF-8 patterns, with their converters, will completely supplant the older patterns.
