It is worth noting that a frequent
question from users is how to remove unwanted
preinstalled dictionaries.  In a future release perhaps a
modification of the install process might allow selection of
dictionaries at install time.  I suspect, but do not know for
certain, that in some cases such users wish to economise on
memory, be it storage or RAM, used by the program when installed
on older computers.
