Upon reviewing flyspell again, I realized that it is possible to
integrate with it, which I think makes much more sense than having a
package that stands entirely on its own.

What I've done is modified auto-correct to make it more of an extension
to ispell and flyspell, rather than its own interface.  Corrections made
through either of these packages will be added as automatic corrections.

Further, I also added the ability to add support for handling
corrections from any other package.  I explain how to do this in the

Summary of New Design:

- Takes a correction from another package and stores it in an abbrev table
- The abbrev table is only active in auto-correct-mode, to avoid cluttering the 
global abbrev table
- The abbrev table is limited by auto-correct-predicate, which allows for 
better control
- Integrates with Ispell and flyspell to add their corrections without having 
to use another correction interface
- Can integrate with any other correction package
