I had a good look on my trip home last night. As far as I can see:
if we drop php-pspell we wouldn't need aspell anymore (only the libs are 
needed anyway)
urpmq --whatrequires php-pspell returns nothing.
php-enchant uses enchant and looking at that, the link is from myspell to 
hunspell. Anssi, your opinion
