Can you point out where in the code you see that assumption?
> From the conversation on other bugs, I think that the correct thing to do here is to remove the first part of my patch (so that the hardwired dictionaries keep their individual casechars and not-casechars settings), and keep the second part of the patch (so that ispell-set-spellchecker-params does not change them all to [:alpha:].

I think so, but we should make sure the hard-wired values work with
Aspell, before we make that change. If they don't, we should provide
something that works for Aspell.
