That was fast! Great work.

Always cool to keep .emacs short.

Now - I have one question. Is it possible to pass name of dictionary instead of renaming
.dic and .aff files?

The reason: I belieave it is much easier to instruct people how to pass name of a file to
Emacs, than how to find what locale their Emacs or system use :).

Furthermore, what if we wish to use two languages == two dictionaries. How to
specify for ispell-change-dictionary if dictionaries are not set in list. Does hunspell
enumerate all dictionaries in folder?

For example there is a list of country names and codes in rw-language-and-country-codes.el.
Any chance to use it and automate so users don't have to be instructed to rename dictionary
