[Bug 445863] Re: Spell checking doesn't allow US English words when using "English" language

There is at least an option in gedit's language settings (Tools > Set
Language...) to use US English, which isn't the case in empathy. That
said, gedit's generic "English" option doesn't recognize US English-
specific words either, which runs counter to how I would think it should
work: "English" should recognize all English dialects, and the specific
entries ("English (United States)", "English (Australian)", etc.) should
only recognize their specific words.
>From a 'Joe User' standpoint, if I select "English" or "US English"
during the install, these bits should be configured accordingly. From
an interface standpoint, shouldn't the language options set in System >
Administration > Language Support be obeyed by all Gnome applications,
by default at least? Mine is currently set to "English (United States)"
and gedit and empathy are both ignoring it.
