What if the word is like `rm -rf /`  for example?
Doing something like that above is completely
creazy :( There are actually 3 different popen()
variants - 2 of them give you stdin too so you better
use this to write the "word" to ispells stdin.
Don't use echo or something like this!

As Andreas already said (and you can easily see by
comparing the strings, can you? ;)
Python has os.path.join() to construct paths
for the actual platform.
(And since this is a 3rd party tool anyway, you
might want to make it configurable - of course not
via ZMI)
