Hello Emacs-Users

I have quite a special problem. And I don't know if it can be solved
by Emacs configuration possibilities at all. 

I'm living and writing in Switzerland where our orthography (as well
as computer keyboards) don't know about the German letter ß (sz). We
always use ss instead.

This is a problem in Flyspell, since all words containing ss instead
of the German ß are marked as incorrect. I'm using the geman-new8
dictionary on a Debian Etch machine. There seems to be no special dictionary
for Swiss German rules of orthography.

Does anybody know an Emacs hack that makes ss and ß be treated as equal
alternatives in Flyspell?

Thanks for help,
