This was not a Debian-specific step; ukhyphen has been excluded from

separately include both (for example) ukhyph and ukhyphen. Indeed,
ukhyph and uk-hyph would be the only non-redundant entries.
All guesses aside, we could ask Phil his intent. But I'd rather not.
I would read the license as "ukhyphen1.tex or ukhyphnw.tex are
