The spellchecker was introduced in 2.041 and mentioned as a simple feature 
that didn't take much time to implement. And of course it wasn't intended to 
be this slow. I can't recall dmd 2.041 being as slow as the latest version 

I find the spellchecker useful, not a major thing but I like it. So yes, it 
used to be fun for a while ;)
