You'd possibly be better hacking the scripts to pass the response
through one of the command line spell checking tools such as
ispell or aspell.  Haven't looked at the code, so not sure how hard it
would be to add a new POST action to the scripts, but it may be an
easy hack, and could be an easy alternative to client-side spell checking.
