Currently, a user may put a file in the /dictionary/ folder with the name ignore.txt with words that should be ignored during dictionary look-up, but if a user has more than one dictionary, then the ignore file applies to all of the dictionaries.

I propose that each dictionary should get its own ignore list, named after the dictionary's own file name (so that the dictionary consist of four files with the same name, not three), with the file extension "ignore". So if the dictionary files are named foo.ifo, foo.idx and foo.dz, the ignore file would be foo.ignore. That will make it easier to keep the ignore list with the dictionary wherever it is moved.

I also propose that users must be able to create a global ignore list that applies to all dictionaries, called e.g. global.ignore or ignore.global or suchlike, so that they can apply an ignore command to all dictionaries, if they want to (e.g. a list of stopwords).
