Sorry, I goofed: I meant ispell-check-version, the command, when
invoked interactively -- what is its purpose?  It sounds like you are
saying it no longer has any purpose as a command, is that true?

​I goofed in a complementary way: I gave an answer about ispell-check-version, whose purpose is now (as far as I can see) to give the version of ​the spell-checker program (i.e. aspell, hunspell etc.) for use in bug reports, or other diagnostic purposes.
