I don't think it is currently possible to have the underline
colored differently than the rest of the face, so this may be
more effort than at first seems. But I do think it would be a
worthwhile change, as flyspell currently messes up syntax
highlighting in programming modes where function or variable
names are in some unreadable coding convention.

Another thing that bothered me recently with flyspell when
installing Emacs on a new machine, is that
`flyspell-default-dictionary' is set to "american" by default.
I think it would be better to default to nil, and let ispell
decide which dictionary to use by default.
