voikko_init_with_path is part of the old API and therefore does not take full 
language tags. Plain "hfst" should work here.

But there is an easier method available that does not require changing or 
recompiling the spell service binary. Just add symbolic link "mor-default" 
that points to the morphology that you want to use as the default:

  ln -s ~/.voikko/2/mor-hfst ~/.voikko/2/mor-default
