At first, I thought about adding it the special characters which can be
considered part of the word, but I just tried it, and it doesn't work.
Maybe because Aspell is 8 bit only, and AFAIK the curly apostrophe is
outside iso-8859-1.

I guess the only proper way of doing this is making Aspell understand
both kinds of apostrophes as "synonyms", which AFAIK would require you
to file a feature request.
