Enchant is a spell check wrapper for KDE which allows you to use your choice of dictionary backends. It doesn't make sense to require two different dictionaries (aspell and hunspell) and offer a 3rd as optional. I think this should be handled like phonon and audio backends.

This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  dependencies for aspell/hunspell modules are minimal, so I won't accept the extra hassle of making these dependencies optional. Users will complain when their dictionary of choice doesn't work anymore because we decided to split this package into backends.
