Does 'yes, yes, YES' sound like a complaint?

Don't get mad. These are all incremental improvements:
1. Add a spellchecker (Stefan).
2. Include english dictionary in installer (ignore add and remove again
of the thesaurus) (Stefan).
3. Make it easier to pick up non-english dictionaries, because we can't
install _all_ dictionaries with the installer (??).
I think what we have in the installer now is just about perfect. We are
not complaining about that at all, just taking another step towards
making installation easier, which I think was *your* goal too.
Including the spellchecker with the language pack is not always the
right solution, although it is very easy. You might write log messages
in a different language from the one you use on your PC. TSVN log
messages are always in english, even if you use the spanish language
pack on your PC.
And we are not asking you to change anything anyway. I think the
open-office downloader is written in Delphi, so (if we go that way) it
is something Lübbe or I could look at. And if we just prepackage
dictionaries, you still don't have to do it.
