Quick question regarding the name of the port: I couldn't help but 
noticing that the port names changed from "hunspell-dict-en" to 
"hunspell-en". Was is the reasoning behind it? I'm asking because I'm 
the maintainer for "pt_BR" and I'm going to submit "sv_SE" and I would 
like to know if the naming convention is changing, so I can follow.

Another question is regarding the dependency on hunspell: is it really 
needed at runtime? The fact that I want to install a dictionary does not 
necessarily mean that I want to use hunspell (the command line tool); 
plenty of other GUI tools, and macOS itself, support hunspell and can be 
told to use the dictionaries.
