Now I start to think it doesn't work for me either!

I did

  $ sudo apt-get --install-suggests install iamerican-insane
  $ sudo select-default-ispell

and selected american-insane (the UI even mentions Emacs BTW)

but the dictionary wouldn't turn up with

  M-x ispell-change-dictionary RET SPC

then I did

  $ sudo apt-get --install-suggests install iamerican-\*

and it installed all of it, I did 'ispell-change-dictionary'
again and all the smaller alternatives were now there, but
I picked -insane anyway, and what happened is, now "american"
turns up as an alternative in Emacs.

Is this as it should be, i.e. I use the -insane version and it
is solved under the hood somehow? Or am I using
just iamerican?
