You program, so you're a programmer... don't you think?
The wiki would be a good place, also to add distribution-specific
installation instructions for hunspell and cpath examples, etc. (Took
me some googling.)
You can also use Github gist [1] or many other sites for code sharing
without signing up there.

Not an error, just an idea:
Maybe assigning keyboard short cuts (that a user can change) to
start/stop spell checking
is better than enabling the spell checking by default when loading the module.
