Spell checker is basically ready to go with some rigorous testing.  
Again, it is important to note that aspell doesn't like words with 
single quotes (e.g. don't, won't, can't, we'll, etc).  However, despite 
this I think the feature is useful and, as is typical with most of our 
features, it can be turned off.

I'll see if I can't get the code into CVS in short order.  Keep in mind 
the spell checking will only be done for stories and comments since 
there is an existing preview option that makes integration easier.  For 
future release we'll have to talk about how we might want to add it to 
things like links, events, etc which don't have a preview concept.
