Presumably most of the size is the dictionaries rather than the
spellchecker code? So I think it would be a good idea to ask the user
which dictionaries they want at install time (perhaps it could check in
the same folder as the installer for the dictionaries first to make
corporate installations quicker).

Personally, I would choose "none" because I can't see why the average
user really cares about spelling in a log message of an SCM tool. There
are so many specialised words/class-/file-/variable names etc etc in the
average log message that the whole thing ends up being littered with red
underlining making the real misspellings almost impossible to notice.
Was there really ever a big demand for a spell checker anyway? It's not
like TSVN is even a code editor - let alone a word processor. It also
seems to ship by default with bastardised "English" (en-US) instead of
real English English from England ;)
