The .orig.tar.gz seems to be a git clone of
<git://github.com/udienz/ispell-id.git>, though the files match
aspell5-id-1.2-0.tar.bz2.  I would suggest:

- setting the version number in debian/changelog based on the
  upstream version:

  aspell-id (1.2-0-1) unstable; urgency=low

    * Initial package for Debian (Closes: #604557).
    * Add simple rules file (using cdbs, based on such-and-such
	documentation), a control file describing the binary package,
      and an appropriate compat file.

   -- Mahyuddin Susanto <udienz@gmail.com>  ... whenever ...

- putting a copy of aspell5-id-1.2-0.tar.bz2 named
  aspell-id_1.2-0.orig.tar.bz2 in the parent directory to your
  build dir when building the package.

Perhaps this package should Provides: aspell-dictionary?  Brian
Nelson might have more advice; cc-ing him.

Mm, that's a lousy reason to introduce a new package.  Better to
improve the existing ones.

But this is a very good reason to introduce a package.

Hope that helps.
