Smashing! However, it should probably avoid correcting spellings
in anything but C comments.
Perhaps my C comment parser should be converted to perl and
incorporated into, and used to divide the source
file into two streams (comment and noncomment); the comment
stream would be spell-fixed and merged back with the noncomment
stream to create the output.

And thanks to Shaheed for converting my list of misspellings to a correction list!

I suggest we remove the entries
brain-damaged=dain-bramaged,dain bramaged
as we're not trying to remove humor from the comments.

Also, the words 'controllen' and 'callin', are not typos, so
should be removed, and
should be just

The above examples make me think the list of corrections will have
to be very carefully vetted before we turn this thing loose.
