Hi Emacs,

I'm a layman, so please instruct me.

In the beginning was Ispell (the spelling program) and ispell.el (the
Emacs interface).  The communication is via pipes or ptys.

But today there's Aspell (among others), which provides an external C

Could Emacs leverage it?  What are the pros and cons of pipes/ptys and
the C API for Emacs' sake?
