Well, I didn't really intend to post this, but since I've subscribed anyway.
The SUN OpenOffice.org people are considering an extremely complex
firefox-like extension system for distribute their hunspell
dictionaries. The reasoning being:
1. dictionnaries have to be distributed separately from OO.o (users
wouldn't like a full-dict huge download, or dicts have incompatible
2. linux distributions will never agree on a standard place to put
dictionaries, so complex registration mechanisms are needed to ensure
dict distribution works in all cases :

So can you put the SUN guys out of their misery and define an "official"
root for hunspell dicts?
