I would *love* to see grammar checking support in core Emacs, but I would not 
want to see Emacs tied to LanguageTool. I would welcome a set of hooks (in the 
more general sense), perhaps similar to Flymake but easier to set up. I 
currently use Vale and Flymake to do both grammar and spell checking, and I 
find the experience quite painful. I disabled Emacs internal spell checking, 
for I do not want to maintain two sets of regular expressions, one for grammar 
checking and one for spell checking, that define what parts of text to ignore.
