Is there a chance to support hunspell rather than aspell? Hunspell is
the default spelling checker in libreoffice and it covers a lot more
languages than aspell does. If scribus aims to be truly international
(and we know there are efforts to support RTL, more exotic fonts etc) I
think hunspell is the way to go.
Or perhaps this 'enchant' thingy supports hunspell too?
