en_US is the default, but if you chose another dictionary in the Options
dialog, you would need that aspell-* package instead.  There is even a
"none" option there.  So it's hard to say that git-gui really needs
aspell-en when it's up to the user as to which dictionary he chooses.
Perhaps a message: tag should be added to libaspell15's setup.hint to
remind users to install the aspell-* for their preferred language(s)?
