How will that help, exactly?  /usr/dict/words exists on almost every
Posix system, which is why ispell.el has that as the default.  But
there's no comparable functionality on Windows, so the only way of
getting this work on Windows is to find or download such a file from
somewhere, and manually install it in some arbitrary directory.  How
is Emacs supposed to know whether such a file exists, and where?
