As a matter of interest, does anyone have any data about what people are
actually typing into text widgets, that would help us decide whether
this was worthwhile or not?  

I'd guess at least 90% of what I type into any text fields in GNOME (if
you discount composing mail, and I already have spell-checking for that
anyway) are names, addresses, filenames and directory paths, for which a
spellchecker is zippo use anyway :)
