No, the reason is if a user has there language set at "fr" or "fr_XX" 
where XX is an unknown region that Aspell needs to be able to find the 
regionless dictionary.  With .alias files Aspell will only find them if 
the user explicitly specifies them with the "master" option.  It will not 
find them if the user just provides a language.
