How to Write a Spelling Corrector edit / delete

"The full details of an industrial-strength spell corrector are quite complex ... What I wanted to do here is to develop, in less than a page of code, a toy spelling corrector that achieves 80 or 90% accuracy at a processing speed of at least 10 words per second." Nice -- this'd be a good case study for our revamped algorithms module.
