Also, as a slight aside, does anybody know whether or not Mozilla
Thunderbird and/or Firefox are also using hunspell? and if so whether or
not they are using the same dictionaries as OOo/LibO? I'd always assumed
that collation and distribution of the various dictionaries was
centrally managed by the hunspell people themselves, and thus one en-US
dictionary (say OOo/LibOs) was identical to another en-US dictionary
(say Thunderbirds).

"I foresee a universal information system (UIS), which will give
everyone access at any given moment to the contents of any book that has
ever been published or any magazine or any fact. The UIS will have
individual miniature-computer terminals, central control points for the
flood of information, and communication channels incorporating thousands
of artificial communications from satellites, cables, and laser lines.
Even the partial realization of the UIS will profoundly affect every
person, his leisure activities, and his intellectual and artistic
development. But the true historic role of the UIS will be to break down
the barriers to the exchange of information among countries and people."

        -- Andrei Sakharov, Saturday Review/World (August 24th, 1984)
