What about a spell checker?

I am a horrible speller and would like to be able check my documents for spelling errors with a key press. I don't think it would be necessary to build a spell checker into SublimeText2 but I would like to be able to use a platform one (e.g. aspell on Linux, etc.)

IMHO, sublime is a text editor for programming and a spell checker is unnecessary, otherwise entire file will be red lined.
If you wanna spell check, use a word doc editor.
I could imagine having this activated for plain text files only. But most of the time I don't need it...
I completely agree and I stated in the question that I thought it would be best as a key press, not full-time. That said, there are times that I would like to spell check some code (comments, output, error messages, etc.) It would be extremely helpful to be able to highlight some text and push F7 (or whatever) and have that section checked.

Anyway, its just a suggestion.

Sublime Text 1.4 has a (context aware) spell checker, and it will be coming to Sublime Text 2.
