I don't think ispell/flyspell are particularly well suited for
today's expectations.  I'd welcome a new interface to ispell based on
something like jit-lock or flymake.

I think flymake would benefit from improvements to make this possible,
and several flymake backends could take advantage (e.g. checkdoc).

For me the question is rather whether flymake performs well enough when
opening a 10MB file.
