Thanks.

I wonder if it won't be better to delay pushing this until you solve
that problem.  The ispell-dictionary-alist is for Ispell speller only;
all the modern spellers should glean that information from the
installed dictionaries, and not bother users with tedious setups.  Do
you see any need to get this into master before you add this
functionality for enchant?

Thanks.  Note that this should not only list the installed
dictionaries, but also deduce the suitable values of CASECHARS and
NOT-CASECHARS for each dictionary.
