Thanks Wim. That is a viable single language solution, where the 
language is taken from $LANG.

Here is the gist of what I came up with:

In short: detect the language with python langdetect and pass this as 
the `-l` flag to aspell. The speed could be greatly improved (10x) if 
you can make assumptions about which languages you are going to use for 
langdetect. I created a pull request to see this happen.
