Jaime i only said Thunderbird cuz that's the client i use. there are

Todd i totally agree a standard needs to be reached. like there is the
ODF format a standardized dictionary format would be a great idea.

But why only for Thunderbird?
Why not make an open container (or just modularize the existing one with a
well defined interface) to will allow any application to use the resources
(e.g. dictionaries) and have full integration with all LO resources?
Isn't this what freedesktop.org standards are for? A standard for
spell checking libraries (I mean the library of words, not the
software library) shared across all open-source programs would be very
useful. Such a thing has already been proposed:
So rather than trying to get other groups to write wrappers to
integrate with libo's own spelling dictionary, I think it would be
much better if there was a single, standard dictionary format that all
open-source programs shared. Any program that implements the standard
will automatically get support for the same dictionaries. This avoids
each program needing to write compatibility layers for every other
So I think putting some effort into getting this standard ironed out
would be very beneficial to a lot of projects.
