Bug#451565: jed-extra: no Suggests dependency on ispell

Package: jed-extra
Version: 2.4.2-1
Severity: minor

ispell from jed-extra is a drop-in replacement so it is possible this bug
should be filed for jed as well.  Anyhow, I wish to point out that neither
jed or jed-extra have a Suggests dependency on ispell, and I believe one
should be required since obviously the original jed ispell or the jed-extra
ispell and ispell_region will not work without the ispell package being
installed.  For my new debian testing install I assumed ispell was installed
when I tried ispell from within jed, and I found out the hard way that it
was not installed which is the reason I am filing this bug.

BTW, I am pleased to see ispell_region working so nicely.  (My previous
install was Ubuntu dapper where it did not work.)
