Hi,

>  Practically speaking, just about everyone downloading a Spell Checker product is going
to end up using a Category X dictionary.  Is it a true technical "requirement"?  No, because
someone can use some custom dictionary.

They can also use a non LGPL dictionary (as been pointed out in this thread - see the SCOWL
link [1]), not all dictionaries out there are GPL or have licences that are incompatible with
Apache.

Thanks,
Justin
