I wonder if this is a function of hunspell outside of Scribus. Sifting
the source in various ways, it doesn't seem there is anything
substantial inside of Scribus in regard to hunspell, other than looking
for it. On the other hand, it may be an issue of adding Anii as an
official Scribus language...
