To me the gnome-dictionary in FC5 is regressing.. There is much less
dictionaries groups I can select: 3 items (call them dict groups?) are
available, no precision about what is the "default" dict server contents..
and no more list of dicts as it was present w/ FC3. And less settings too
(for instance the matching strategy). BTW, the strategy setting appears in
gconf-editor, but who knows what values are legal (but "exact")?
