Your patch works for aspell version 0.60.3-20050121.

I also suggest to add another quite common separator `+' to the
set of separators `[-_]' in version-regexp-alist.

But what to do for aspell version formats not supported even with your
patch?  Various distributions can modify the version string to arbitrary
formats.  I think ispell.el should fail gracefully in the case of
unsupported version formats.

To do this, the default value of ispell-aspell-supports-utf8 could be
`auto-detect', so users will be able to set it explicitly to `nil' or `t',
if version testing fails (with `condition-case' around the testing code).
