I see that on the same day I wrote this (I didn't check if earlier or 
later) an incomplete update of dictionaries was done.

While data are probably OK, I would prefer that the update it is 
completed according to my original mail, so that users won't be confused 
(thanks to the new CHANGELOG and README) and that anyone wishing to 
create derivatives of the package or its portions can easily find all 
history in the documentation in the "legacy" folder (and the will of 
earlier contributors is respected).

The incomplete update has been ported to the 3.5 branch too, if I see 
correctly, so it would be nice to complete it there too.
