Has my vote.  I'd say that dictionary packages should be vote-exempt
anyway, since aspell was already accepted into the distribution.

Wow.  This seems pretty hefty for a dictionary package (aspell-en is only
1.8M).  Sorry, I don't have time to download it now, so I'll just ask: are
the dictionary files compressed?  If not, perhaps we could look into some
scheme for compressing the dictionary files, and patch aspell accordingly.
