Unfortunately, I've had problems with cocoAspell since 10.7, and they
are still there on 10.8.  It seems to basically work, but lots of
words get marked as incorrect that shouldn't be - it even offers to
correct them to exactly what they are!  There are lots of error
messages spat out to the console, mostly relating to 32/64 bit

I've tried emailing the author, but he hasn't replied for years, and
it looks as if the software is unmaintained.  It really would be a
huge service if someone updated it (since I think it is open source),
and I suspect that for someone who knew what he/she was doing, the
fixes would be minor.
