[aspell-devel] Is Aspell Still Relevant in Light of Hunspell?

Since hunspell comes out it seams like no one cares much about Aspell. For example, it seams that RedHat wants to completely eliminate all spell checkers except Hunspell:

Originally Hunspell was designed to replace MySpell in OpenOffice however since then it has become an independent spell checker with many of the same features of Ispell/Aspell. Although it is never explicitly states the Hunspell is intended as a better Aspell (in fact they hardly mention Aspell at all), it is in a prime position to completely replace Aspell. In fact the most recent version even has support for "dictionary based phonetic suggestion" [Hunspell ChangeLog].

So the question is: Do You think Aspell is still relevant in light of Hunspell?

I have my own option on the matter but I thought I would post to aspell-devel first to get others opinions. I might also post this to aspell-user.

Thanks in advance.
