What I meant in the rest of my mail was that ispell should already be out
of the standard packages (as well as iamerican, ibritish and wbritish),
and the same for any other spellchecker like aspell or hunspell.

Only wamerican was intended to be part of standard. dictionaries-common is
also part of standard because wamerican needs it for wordlists integration
into Debian. This is something I would like to improve, but I am still
unclear about how.
