I installed the `hunspell-en_GB` since I need the English (GB) hunspell support. Well, and I did it.
As well, now I have a plethora of other languages I do not need, I do not want and I cannot hide. Since now, every application which uses hunspell lists:

- en_AG
- en_BS
- en_BW
- en_BZ
- en_DK
- en_GB
- en_GH
- en_HK
- en_IE
- en_IN
- en_JM
- en_NA
- en_NG
- en_NZ
- en_SG
- en_TT
- en_ZA
- en_ZW

So, I share my idea: why do not split english dictionaries all in a new `hunspell-en` package while the `hunspell-en_GB` only has the en_GB dictionary ?
This task depends upon
