bug#17316: 24.3.90; Ispell doesn't support Hunspell's "multiple dictiona

Subject: bug#17316: 24.3.90; Ispell doesn't support Hunspell's "multiple dictionaries" feature
Date: Tue, 22 Apr 2014 21:15:06 +0300

This is more a missing feature than a bug.

According to Hunspell's man page:

       -d dict,dict2,...
              Set dictionaries by their base  names  with  or  without  paths.
              Example of the syntax:

       -d en_US,en_geo,en_med,de_DE,de_med

       en_US and de_DE are base dictionaries, they consist of aff and dic file
       pairs: en_US.aff, en_US.dic and de_DE.aff, de_DE.dic.  En_geo,  en_med,
       de_med  are special dictionaries: dictionaries without affix file.

(This seems to say that you can spell-check text that mixes English
and German words, but that's a lie: Hunspell actually uses only the
first .aff file and disregards the rest.)  This feature is useful for
combining general dictionary with several specialized dictionaries.
But ispell.el does not support this feature: it only allows specifying
a single dictionary at the prompt of ispell-change-dictionary, and
insists on getting one of the strings it collected from the output of
"hunspell -D" (and it looks like dictionaries without matching affix
files are filtered out of the list).

It would be nice to have more freedom in specifying the arguments to
the -d switch.
