Spellchecker patch: less redundancy

Hi! This is my first patch I've submitted here... I hope I'm doing everything right. Anyway, I was annoyed that, using the web-based spellchecker, if I used the same word "incorrectly" over and over it would show up in the suggestions list over and over. I suggested a solution, and patched The patch is at Here is the behavior before and after.

If there's anything else I need to do for this, or if it has any unexpected problems, let me know!

I found a small bug in multisearch.bml (Re: ~lj_support).

When searching for an email address, the comparison if a user has a viewable email address is returning wrong results if the user displays both of his addresses (line 88). A short circuit is the Wrong Thing in this case.
I attach a small patch for this, as I don't have a Goathack account yet (I'm waiting for it...).

Update: Okay, so this wasn't it. Too quick to fire at the wrong target. But the bug is there: the search through multisearch.bml chokes on some addresses, like kyrielle's actual email address. The question is still 'why?'
