That would be great. Ideally, htfuzzy should take any aff file that
ispell allows, without having to preprocess it. If you can get a patch
to us, it would be appreciated. (I'll be away for the next 3 weeks,
but I'm sure Geoff could port it to the 3.2 development code, and Joe
can archive the 3.1.5 version of the patch for others to use.)

Again, I'm not familiar enough with affix files to say for sure, but it
seems to me that htfuzzy should map the two-character accent notation
to the corresponding ISO accented letter. Maybe some of the affix file
parsing code should be borrowed from ispell.
