Re: gtkspell (was Re: Announcing: Project Ridley)

Something that really bothers me about gtkspell too is the lack of an
option in the popup to change the language. While by default it uses
your desktop language (I think), which is something that makes sense,
there are a lot of non-native English speakers running their desktops in
English (I, for example, am a native Dutch speaker, but I really hate to
run my desktop in Dutch).
This is a real annoyance in gaim for example: it labels allmost all of
the words as incorrect.
