| At the risk of sounding silly, I really have to ask:
| Why does Debian even bother with ispell anymore, considering that
| almost everything out there has been converted to use aspell or
| myspell instead of ispell, plus the FSF considers aspell as the only
| GNU -supported spell checker?

Afaik emacs for instance still defaults to using ispell, so while GNU
might have said that in some context, it's not particularly enforced.
