Better version of ispell?

Is there a version/improvment of ispell that:
% Lets you exclude certain sections of a file from spellchecking?
Example: I often email sendmail logs with their random-character
queue ids. I don't want ispell to check those cut/pasted logs.
% Lets you declare correctly-spelled words as being incorrect?
% Example: I often misspell the word "cron" as "corn"; ispell
obviously doesn't catch this. I rarely use the word "corn". I want
to remove "corn" from the dictionary w/o actually tweaking
/usr/dict/words or whatever ispell uses. I know you can *add* words
(using %$HOME/.ispell_english for example), but what spellchecker
lets you *remove* them as well?
I know about aspell, but think it suffers from the same limitations
(in fact, ti may be the same program?)
I posted a similar query to aspell-user at gnu.org earlier, but got no
reply, so I thought I'd try this list instead.
We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
[for absolute pedants: yes, I misspelled improvement incorrectly up there!]
