Description of problem:
Aspell swaps two of the most important Ispell keys. In real ispell, A in stands
for (A)ccept and I for (I)insert. Aspell swaps the meaning of these keys causing
lots of confusion amoung the users who also have to use the real ispell program
on non-RedHat Linux systems they login to every day. Moreover, aspell, even in
ispell compatibility mode, seems to ignore the user's private .ispell_english
file. Is it possible to put the old ispell back into the distribution or at
least to modify the aspell to be more compatible with the old ispell?

aspell will be reved for the next release. the key assignments for the current
aspell, are an upstream decision.
