I've got an untested tool (contributed by a user) that can create a
british wordlist from the ispell british dictionary...  I intend to
use it to create a british wordlist package, but haven't done so yet,
and may also use it to improve the correlation between the ispell
american dictionary and the 'wenglish' american wordlist (both of
which I already maintain).

I'll probably get time to play with this soon, but if you want to try
it yourself let me know.

Thanks, I'll look into that as well and see if we can package it.
