So a reasonable definition of cache units (I will not say "words" any more) might be whitespace-delimited strings. This would not need casechars, not-casechars, otherchars and many-otherchars-p.

I've put this on my to-investigate list for the future; of course, if there's an obvious reason it wouldn't work, do let me know!

​Basic tests using [[:alpha:]] for casechars and [^[:alpha:]] for not-casechars seem to work OK.

​I meant [[:graph:]] and [^[:graph:]].​
 
​What would be a more rigorous test? So far I just tried some spell-checking and use of flyspell.

​Also, as I realised while preparing the patch for bug#25230, it is only hunspell that has special information about character classes. All the others just use [:alpha:]. So if it's good enough for ispell and aspell, can't it be good enough for enchant? (It just means that for now "direct Hunspell" is arguably better than "Hunspell via Enchant".)
