I agree with your ':('... :P
BTW maybe the aspell data (dictionaries) could be used, isn't it? I hope 
it will be possible to have some compatibility with it since it's the 
most used correction tool on open systems, and this would allow to use 
the many resources that are already available for it without creating 
them (again) from scratch.
