How is it evident from bugzilla that it won't happen? The most recent comment from a developer in that bug says it won't be fixed until the underlying code is rewritten. That rewriting is happening now (I'd link to the bug, but it'll just mean it'll get 200 comments from people complaining that it hasn't happened 5 years ago...), which should then mean they can improve the hyphenation (and a bunch of other things).
