In my opinion we should guarantee and fix up a room for possible future 
spell checker(s).

I dislike an idea of mainaing concurrently 
ispell/aspell/myspell/hunspell + voikko and hspell. In Mageia (skipping 
Perl) there are slighty more then 100 packages / maintainer.Maintaining 
each one of these spell checkers + its dictionaries needs statistically 
at least 1 full time maintainer.
