Cool, these are pretty nifty sites :-) Once the full_wordlist
is complete we can approach them about adding our wordlist to
their list of dictionaries (there are other sites out there that
might be interested in offering Arabic online lookups).

I saw you CVS commit (wonderful progress), do please try
to include a more meaningful commit phrase beyond "did
work" :-) Maybe include some statistics on how complete
the file is, etc (I'm sure Isam and others will jump in
and indicate the command to run to show that info :-) A
completion percentage would be really neat.
In passing, the words that are out of the dictionary - you
can tag as 'fuzzy' and translate as "BAD_WORD" or something
similar -- make sure things are consistant.
Keep up the great work.
