I hate to do this at this late point (and I *really* hate it when people
do it to me) but I didn't notice the slightly nonstandard practice of
naming the binary 'aspell-bin'.  I'd like to change that.  Otherwise
we have a base package which only contains source, which is also
unusual.  I'd prefer to "mv aspell-{bin-,}0.50.3-1.tar.bz2" and
put it at the top level of the aspell directory and move everything else
underneath it.

Gareth, do you have a problem with that?
