They've changed the output in backward-incompatible ways.  Previous
versions responded thusly:

  @(#) International Ispell Version 3.2.06 (but really Hunspell 1.3.2)

Since this change breaks backward compatibility, does that mean
Hunspell is no longer compatible with the Ispell-like interface that
Emacs expects?
