I plan to review it if it's indeed worth fixing those typos. I already
fixed several false positives like "rela" being changed to "real",
but since it's a 1.8 MB patch I think it's better to ask first before
making any other review.

Yes, no problem

I'm only changing words with 3 chars or more, because otherwise I
would have a lot of false positives, but I think I can add this word
without much trouble.

If you say it's good, I can review it more carefully.
