That's the place where you suggested to keep the original values.  I
thought there were other places, but it's good to know there are none.

​I believe not, indeed.​

But if we find that an installed dictionary is one of those in the
data base of the hard-wired values, we use those values, right?

​No, for aspell, we should only be using aspell dictionaries (found by ispell-find-aspell-dictionaries).​
Because AFAIK Aspell provides only one of the 3 character sets we need
in its dictionaries, the other 2 need to be somehow guessed or
provided by the user.

​They are guessed as [:alpha:], because we don't have better information (that I know of).
