I am not at all familiar with Scribus code, but have programmed with
aspell quite a bit. It is quite easy to call aspell from a C or C++
program, and other programming languages can also be used. Does
Scribus have a plugin architecture that can be used for a
spell-checker plugin? If so, I could volunteer to do it.
