Hello, Debian PHP maintainers.

I've recently received a request from a client to implement
spell-checking in a PHP application.  It seems that the best way to
go about this would be to use the pspell extension, which I
understand is not available in Debian due to a lack of interested

I would be willing to undertake the task of packaging and
maintaining pspell for PHP.  I've read through all of the relevant
bug logs[0] I could find, and it seems apparent that the best way
to package this extension would be as a seperate source package
"more or less just like the php-imap package".

Do I have the right idea here?  If anyone can lend any suggestions,
ideas or corrections, or maybe point me to where this has already
been done, I'd be grateful.

    last one has not been merged with the others?
