Review for inclusion: diction



Hi, all:

One of our faculty requested this, so I revived an old Fedora.us
package, and I'm willing to maintain it in extras. The specfile is
extremely straigtforward to the point of no output at all from rpmlint
(which is a first for me). :) Please approve, and I'll push it into
the CVS.

%description
Diction and style are two old standard UNIX commands. Diction identifies wordy
and commonly misused phrases. Style analyses surface characteristics of a
document, including sentence length and other readability measures.

These programs cannot help you structure a document well, but they can help to
avoid poor wording and compare the readability (not the understandability!) of
your documents with others. Both commands support English and German documents.
