I had something similar recently, only it was database comments, and
it wasn't only spelling but also grammar -- and in some cases sheer
comprehensibility. In my situation, I have legal and regulatory types
reviewing my stuff before it goes out to clients, and they are utterly
unforgiving. So I fixed what needed fixing, and I'm told the fixes
were somehow introduced back into the database.
