I use the US altgr-intl layout so I have access to some of those
codepoints.  For instance, ?á.  However, when I try to select that
option from the *Choices* buffer, it doesn't work.  I'm not sure what's
going on, or how to debug it.

I find your (valuable) suggestion orthogonal to the topic.  Ispell.el is
supposed to be agnostic, and aspell is the "official" GNU spell

I find this suggestion reasonable.  I'll play with that along with the
suggestion to skip between 128 and 160.
