Arjuna, this is very good! I wonder why doesn't it appear in the full
list of spelling dictionaries. I filed a bug:

If the software is free, it can be distributed through Mozilla,
OpenOffice and Google services like GMail and Google Docs.

In the particular case of Mozilla, the spelling dictionary can be
included in the version of Firefox that people download, but only if
it's licensed as GPL, LGPL and MPL. This requirement is strange to me,
but Mozilla are very firm about it. Since you are the author of this
particular dictionary, you can decide to license it this way, and then
it will be installed to all users by default.

The other way to distribute it is just to advertise it any way you can
- blogs, comments, Facebook, anything. Spelling checkers should be
advertised more :)
