Just to clarify: ispell can theoretically handle almost any
instantaneously decodable code that is restricted to byte boundaries.
At the moment, I don't know of a language that has a UTF-8 affix file,
though I imagine that problem will be corrected in the near future.

In particular, if emacs stores stuff internally using a constant-width
encoding, for most languages you could convert that to latin-1, feed
that to ispell, and then generate line offsets with a simple multiply.
