yes, that would be possible. whatever is indexed will be used as a basis for 
spell checking. we should probably put a warning on the spell checker (at least 
on the one I'm implementing).

hmm, don't know. I haven't asked them. but if I had to decide I wouldn't include 
it, because it is clearly not a core feature.

I think introducing the spell checker in the contrib is a good start. we can 
still promote it or integrate it later into an existing module.
