<hyphen><hyphenchar> ligature

An interesting problem has arisen with the T1 <hyphenchar>
character... if you set \hyphenchar to be <hyphenchar> rather than
<hyphen> and allow hyphenation after <hyphen> then `control-flow' will
line break as `control--
flow' since the <hyphen> isn't removed.  One solution to this is to
add a ligature <hyphen>+<hyphenchar>=<hyphenchar>.  

Is this reasonable?  Should I add this to T1.etx?  Are there better
