It was chosen because it comes as a nice .pkg, doesn't require  
anything else (such as MacPorts), and during limited testing, the  
aspell worked fine.

If someone could make a package from the MacPorts install (that  
doesn't require MacPorts), then we could supply that to users!
The install could have dictionaries for a couple of common languages  
as well...
