After learning Ruby a bit better, here comes the utf-8 version for  
French, German etc. of it.

You can set a TM shell variable TM_GSPELL_LANG to e.g. 'de' for  
German, if you want the German spell checker. If it is unset 'en' is  
the default.



PS Maybe a Ruby programmer could rewrite it better ;)
