Re: gtkspell (was Re: Announcing: Project Ridley)

I'm all for spellchecking in Gtk, but GtkSpell has been nothing but trouble for me in Tomboy. It still doesn't handle multiple textbuffers sharing a tag table (which means that rich copy/paste doesn't work), and has some serious memory leaks (though this may be due in part to pspell).

Yes, it's yet another "me too" post, this time for gtkspell.

Spelling checker support is widely used in many apps, and from my POV is a
huge pain because gtkspell is a very common failed dependency for
autopackages. We provide tools to make weak linking against this library
simple but a few projects for whatever mysterious reasons they have refuse
to use them.

Being able to guarantee the presence of GtkSpell by depending on GTK+
would be wonderful.

Last time I asked about this, Owen indicated he didn't think it belonged
in GTK+ but maybe this Project Ridely means a change in policy?
