Sponsored by Middletown Township Public Library, Middletown, NJ, USA.

Adds some spell checking to the OPAC.  Requires the Text::Aspell.pm and the Aspell dictionary:

apt-get install aspell-en libaspell-dev

Checks OPAC search terms against the Aspell dictionary, and suggests possible alternatives.  Right now the number of alternatives is set at five; a future enhancement might be to allow the library to set the number via a syspref.
