Fair enough - but if you control the _environment_ in which these
scripters are working then you can impose a step.  Everyone agrees
that spellchecking is a good idea (particularly in an odd language
like English) so the idea is easily transferable. These tools can be
integrated into an editing environment. For instance, I'm enjoying
Hisham's excellent little Dit editor because ctrl-s fires a luacheck
step, and highlights suspicious names.
