For "eü", perhaps we should consider holding off.

But "eue" also happens to be the most likely of the combinations in German, with highly common words/forms like euer, neue, Steuer, teuer (333 occurrences of these in a random ~1M Gutenberg text)! (These quite common words were what motivated me to make these little enhancements.)

Since "geübt" (and combinations like "ausgeübt") are actually relatively common word forms, I have added the rule

("ge" ["ge"])
below.  I believe anything else is well below diminishing returns.

Since I haven't heard from anyone and I don't know whether to classify this as fix or as feature, I'll be committing Carsten's patch in two days.
Cc'ing Quail author.

I presume this is small enough to not require a consent form.
