I'm the (prospective) new ispell maintainer.  

The problem here is that ispell, and most (all
but the above four) of the ispell dictionaries,
have "Architecture: i386".

I suspect that the ispell dictionaries are not
(should not be) architecture-specific, and that
should be very easy to fix.  But how can I 
determine whether ispell is i386-specific?  (In
theory it should not be.)  Should I just upload
one with "Architecture: All" and see what fails?

Is there advice somewhere for converting old
i386 packages to All?
