I don't have that much knowledge on the theory of Finnish language or spell 
checking either, I just pretty much have an itch to scratch here since I'd 
like to use Voikko with Fedora.

I believe the main reason for not using hunspell is suomi-malaga, which I've 
packaged in Fedora as malaga-suomi-voikko. It is less work for the relatively 
small number of developers and in some cases it works better than hunspell 
would. More information is at

Thanks for adding the SDK and also for the documentation on the wiki. I'll 
probably ask for help on this list if I encounter some issues I can't solve
