Re: ispell.el doesn't find all of aspell's dictionaries

    There is one problem with this code: the dictionary list in the menu
    bar is only updated when ispell.el is loaded (probably due to a call 
    to an auto-loaded function).  So before any ispell-* command is run,
    the menu shows the static list of ispell dictionaries, and if new
    dictionaries are added, the menu is not updated.  I'm not sure what
    can/should be done about that.

Some ideas:

1. Have a menu item, "Update Dictionary List", to check again.

2. If checking is fast, check whenever the user is about to
specify a dictionary.

In the mean time, it would be useful for people to start testing your
patch, so that by the time your papers have arrived, it will be
thoroughly ready to go.
