I think that the -a has to go somewhere, otherwise ispell does not
work for me.  In fact, if I use:

   echo foood | ispell

then I get a usage message.

I see that flyspell.sl adds the -a when starting the flyspell process.
If Ispell_Program_Name already contains -a, then multiple -a values do
not seem to hurt.  So it seems that loading ispell.sl first before
flyspell.sl should work.  It may not work the other way around, but it
is unclear to me why one would do that.
