I agree.  Too long dictionary menu is not useful.  Maybe after selecting
"Change Dictionary" menu item it should pop up the *Completions* buffer
(like e.g. `C-u C-h t' does), so mouse users could select a language
without touching the keyboard for typing SPC, TAB, or ?.

I observed several problems with spell-checking multi-language texts
using aspell with ispell.el.  Maybe those are bugs in aspell, but
we could try to improve ispell.el to work around them.

I already installed my changes, so please update your patch from CVS.
