I attached a patch which adds support for tmispell to kdelibs3 (KSpell) to the 
bug report. KDE 4 and KSpell2 in kdelibs3 (with my FeatureDictionary patch) 
don't need any patching nor ispell hackery as they use enchant. Most GNOME 
stuff these days also uses enchant, partly thanks to the FeatureDictionary 
work. Any app which tries to call ispell, hunspell, aspell or whatever directly 
will need some patching though if we use that approach.

Oh, in case somebody asks why Finnish isn't using hunspell (which is what we're 
trying to standardize on in Fedora): I don't believe there is any working 
Finnish dictionary for hunspell. The one on the OO.o dictionary page is a dummy 
empty dictionary. And given that Finnish has complex agglutinative grammar, a 
simple word list definitely won't cut it. So I trust the folks who actually 
speak Finnish to know what they're doing in this context. ;-)
