I probably consider it better to create ispell patterns for the source
language for that purpose.  And it could be a bit error prone; if the
functionality is there, it might confuse somebody into thinking the
original message could actually be FIXED in the po file.

But if someone bothers to implement this anyway, just make sure you
check EITHER the msgid OR the msgstr in a particular run, not both.
They should obviously be checked with different dictionaries.
