Spellchecker wrapping library

On the surface, Enchant appears to be a generic spell checking library. You can request dictionaries from it, ask if a word is correctly spelled, get corrections for a misspelled word, etc. but all it really does is to provide a uniform wrapper over several popular spell checking libraries including aspell, ispell and AppleSpell.
