We don't use aspell directly, but use 'enchant' which is a kind of
frontend for multiple spell checker dictionaries. I doubt that we can
use this functionality of aspell like this. However, in the latest gedit
we have worked on improving the spell checker situation for languages,
and it does a much better job at spell checking latex documents too.
There is probably still some tweaks to do, but it will try to only spell
check real words now.
