Doesn't the Learn button, in the Spelling panel, aim at precisely  
doing this? This button is misplaced (I thought it would mean  
"Memorize the default dictionary choice"), as is the Forget button,  
but according to Mac Help (accessible from the Finder) that's  
precisely what they do: add or remove entries from the standard  

Not sure whether that apply to the Aspell dictionaries, though (I  
haven't tried).
